Invest In MPC

Take Stock in Student Success!

The diverse communities we serve trust Monterey Peninsula College to educate their most precious resource: people.

The safest and most valuable investment you can make is in education. Your support of MPC will result in huge dividends by opening up avenues to a quality higher education that for many in our community are out of reach. 

While the college has many needs and priorities, we respect the fact that you are the donor.  You decide where you want your funds to help.  We welcome the opportunity to work with you in support of the college.

When you support the MPC Foundation Scholarship program, you enable students to focus on their educational goals and to take steps toward the realization of their potential. With MPC’s accomplished faculty, students come to the college to complete their first two years of study before transferring to a four-year university, or to learn basic skills or receive vocational training…

In 2015, over 60% of the student body qualified for financial aid. Many students work multiple jobs to make ends meet and still struggle to pay for college. With tuition increasing annually, the need for financial aid will increase. Scholarships help students to concentrate on their studies instead of their finances.

Establish a Scholarship

Creating a scholarship in your name, or in honor/memory of a loved one, is one of the most direct ways to support student success. Such a gift allows you to direct the scholarship to support students majoring in a particular program or area that matches your interest. 

Create an Endowed Scholarship

An endowed scholarship, established at a $10,000 or higher,  is an opportunity to leave a legacy in perpetuity. Consider the benefits of a gift that will continue to give. You may choose to make a one-time gift or pledge the amount over a four year period. The principal is invested and a portion of the return is used each year to support the scholarship. The remainder is added back into the principal to promote growth and protect against inflation.

Contribute to our General Scholarship Fund

Make a gift to our General Scholarship Fund to help make a student’s education a possibility this year.
