Specific program or project

Each year, there are many needs in various Macomb programs.  From Athletic teams to advanced technology needs and beyond, donor support is always appreciated. 


Students’ Emergency Needs

Today’s students are faced with economic hardships never before faced in the region.  Macomb Community College has had to step up to help students who are not only struggling to pay for tuition, but are also struggling to feed their family or have found themselves in emergency financial need.  Through the generosity of donors, the MCC Foundation has established emergency funds like the Dreamkeepers™ Fund for emergency assistance and a Food for Thought student food pantry.   Macomb strives to assist students through their hardship so they to remain in school and achieve their dreams.


Arts and Cultural Programs

The Macomb Center for the Performing Arts - the MCPA continues to provide outstanding performances and programs for families to enjoy. Ticket revenue only covers 50% of the costs.  The remainder is made possible through the continued support of donors. 

The Lorenzo Cultural Center – the Lorenzo Center explores the influences and experiences that shape our community’s heritage. From elementary schools to senior centers, the Lorenzo Center is a venue to educate and honor the diverse fabric of the region. This would not be possible without the generosity of donors.
