The Middlesex Community College Foundation Annual Fund provides additional funding to help the college
focus on its future. MCC employees are invited to submit grant proposals to support projects, activities or
equipment not funded through the regular college budget process, which will have an immediate and meaningful
impact on the college community. Over the past nine years, the Annual Fund has raised over $460,000, funding a
total of 115 grant proposals. Members of the Foundation Annual Fund Grants Committee review and approve all
applications using the guidelines and budget parameters set by the MCC Foundation Board. Thank you for your
generous gifts that helped to fund $50,035 in new grants for 2015. The 2015 grants are listed below:
