Support Merced College

Invest in Your Community College
With a Gift to the Annual Fund!

Your Contributions can Ensure
Excellence in Education!

 

If you were to ask current Merced College students why they are enrolled in classes, you would hear comments like these and many others:

“I want to provide for a better future for my family.”

“I want to reach the dream I’ve always had.”

“I want to take on new and interesting challenges.”

“I want to be an inspiration to my children.”

Merced College is home to people of all ages, backgrounds, ambitions, and goals. Our youngest students are those enrolled in our summer College for Kids programs. And, in a variety of classes you’ll find retired adult learners sitting alongside students just out of high school. We like to say that we serve students from 8 to 80 years old. In truth, there’s a place for everyone at Merced College.

A community college is an institution of higher learning that serves the entire community. Merced College educates nurses, farmers, welders, electricians, and teachers. We train people looking for immediate employment in exciting and rewarding high-tech fields like sonography and biotechnology. We give older adults opportunities to enjoy recreational activities like painting classes, dance lessons, and bus trips. Many of our students are here for a second chance at education after raising families.

In fact, Merced College is a treasure box full of hopes and dreams for thousands of students each year. We are the cultural center of our community with superb music and performing arts programs, guest speakers, and lectures. Our athletic programs provide quality competition in an environment of academic learning. We continue to prepare hundreds of students each year to transfer to four-year institutions.

We changes people’s lives everyday—you, other community members and businesses make this possible by making financial contributions to the College. Generous donations by community members like you enhance our ability to meet our educational mission.

Charitable gifts to Merced College enhance our ability to provide quality educational programs. Gifts can be restricted to programs important to you, or they can be unrestricted contributions and used where the need is the greatest. Financial support from the community helps us accomplish our goal of providing the best educational and learning experience possible for everyone. Your giving is critical to our success.

All of our donors are investors in the success of our students. All gifts are important and will be acknowledged in writing and included in a future Merced College Foundation publication. You can join us in this important effort with a tax deductible donation.

Please take a moment and consider supporting Merced College with your gift. And on behalf of our students, thank you for your support!
