Investing in our future, one student at a time.
Through the generosity of Montgomery County Community College alumni, parents and friends, we provide life-changing opportunities our students might not otherwise have.
Your investment in our students is not only a financial one, it inspires confidence, security, and a determination to succeed. We are happy to help ensure your contribution supports an endeavor that is meaningful to you.
Area of Greatest Need
Despite our relatively low tuition and fees, more and more students have increasing difficulty paying for college. Scholarship dollars are essential to help our students in need of financial assistance. The College currently administers hundreds of scholarships, benefiting our most deserving students in a variety of areas of study. You can contribute to a number of existing scholarships, including our general scholarship funds for our Blue Bell and Pottstown campuses. If donating to a specific existing scholarship, please ensure to include its name in a note with your gift.
You also have the opportunity to leave your mark by establishing a named annual, endowed, or blended scholarship at Montco.
An annual scholarship is a current-use, non-endowed named fund which is established to support a specific purpose by a donor. The funds are awarded annually until the account is depleted. To create an annual scholarship a gift agreement is required and a minimum gift of $5,000 is needed to establish the named fund. The gift can be made through a pledge and payable over a five-year period. Donors can continue to add to the fund to build its value.
An endowed scholarship is a scholarship that has been established by a donor and invested with the college's endowment. This fund is awarded in perpetuity, spending only the interest accrued each year, not the principal. This type of fund is designed to create financial sustainability for prolonged impact on student success through scholarships. To create an endowment there is a minimum gift of $20,000 and a gift agreement is required. Payments may be made over 5 years. The endowment is not awarded until 1 year after the $20,000 is fully funded.
A blended scholarship combines the benefits of an annual and endowed scholarship. With a commitment of $25,000, payable over five years, donors have the opportunity to endow a scholarship with the capability of awarding an annual scholarship. Because the endowment is not awarded until a year after it is fully funded with $20,000, the annual scholarship payment allows the scholarship to be awarded in the years that the pledge is being paid for the endowment.
