Friends Of Mcc Foundation To Host Day Of Giving Nov 17 For Student Success Fund
The Friends of MCC Foundation invites the community to make a difference in the life of an MCC student by making a donation on its annual “Day of Giving” Nov. 17.Courtesy of Friends of MCC Foundation
The Friends of McHenry County College Foundation’s annual MCC Day of Giving will be held Thursday, Nov. 17.
During this college-wide day of philanthropy, alumni, faculty, staff, students, parents, friends, and the community are encouraged to donate to support the Student Success Fund at MCC.
The Student Success Fund helps MCC students with financial support to handle unexpected and unique emergency expenses such as medical bills, essential vehicle repair, technology needs, or utility bills.
Through this fund, the college aims to improve retention when unforeseen circumstances may impact a student’s ability to stay in college and complete their educational goals.
“The most common sentiment we hear from our students is how grateful they are for the support of the community,” said Brian DiBona, executive director of the Friends of MCC Foundation. “Your donations show them there is a whole group of people who believe in them and their goals. During the Day of Giving, we’re aiming to raise $5,000 to help these students tackle any financial obstacles outside of tuition that make them feel like they can’t continue with school.”

The Mcc Legacy Society
The lasting impact of bequests — both large and small — have helped shape MCC today. For many alumni and friends of MCC, a charitable bequest is the easiest and best way to make a gift to the College. By means of your will or other estate plan, you can name MCC as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, or of particular assets in your estate. Many of the most powerful gifts with an enduring impact have been bequests.
There are many reasons to make a bequest. A bequest allows you to honor a loved one while providing critical support to the College through a scholarship fund, or another fund underwriting research and teaching.
Giving by bequest costs nothing now, yet it may give you a great deal of satisfaction to know that your future gift will live on.
- A lead trust can be established through a bequest. MCC receives income for a term of years from the trust, after which the assets pass to your beneficiaries, often at a much-reduced tax cost.
