Our Impact

MEC Fund

The MEC Fund equips our region with skilled healthcare professionals through state-of-the-art equipment and innovative learning resources, ensuring excellence in vital medical fields like nursing and respiratory therapy.

Student Success Fund

Students will have access to the Student Success Fund to address unexpected emergency expenses that would otherwise force them to stop out or dropout from their educational journey.


Your donations for scholarships make it possible for bright students to earn their degrees, transfer to a four-year institution or enter the workforce with highly desirable skills - transforming and contributing to our community as a whole.


One professor or department chair can impact hundreds of lives through teaching, mentoring, and research. Funding supports research, pays student workers, and fosters global scholarly collaboration.
