Our development officers can work with you to match your philanthropic goals to the college’s objectives. Contact us today to tell us what inspires you and learn about all the ways you can give to MHC or donate today.


Help students achieve their goals and realize the benefits of advanced education in our region. Supporting our annual campaign for students enhances programs, provides bursaries that reduce costs, and rewards academic and athletic achievements.

Featured projects:
  • The student awards program funds scholarships and bursaries. Start a legacy with an endowment, or fund an award annually. We can help you help a student.
  • You can enhance a program in many ways. We’re often looking for resources – including equipment and expertise -- to provide new learning opportunities.
  • Donate to the Pathways Student Life Enhancement Fund -A fund that helps students achieve their educational goals by helping them overcome financial barriers. Unlike scholarships and bursaries, there are no criteria to apply to this fund.

Art, design, music and dance are vital aspects of society and thriving segments of our economy. Supporting arts and culture helps students develop their passions and talents.

Featured projects:
  • Bring Back the Music” is a project that inspires younger students who otherwise may never have the opportunity to hold an instrument. Share your love of the arts!

The business world continues to grow in complexity and opportunity. The small company on the corner may do business across the globe while meeting needs at home, too. Your support enhances the capacity of women and men establishing their careers.

Featured projects:
