The Benefits of Planned Giving: Planned giving is a smart way to reduce the tax burden on an estate and maximize an estate’s value to beneficiaries. By including the MCC Foundation in your will or naming the Foundation as a beneficiary on a retirement plan or life insurance

policy, you may reap the tax benefits now while supporting the future of public higher education in our community. Be sure to contact the MCC Foundation regarding your decision to make a planned gift so that you will be recognized as a member of the Alice Holloway Young Society.


E. Kent Damon Lifetime Giving Society

The late E. Kent Damon, MCC trustee emeritus and director emeritus of the MCC Foundation, was instrumental in establishing the MCC Foundation and believed that private philanthropy was imperative to the college’s future. In addition to being the namesake for MCC’s Damon City Campus, Mr. Damon is remembered through this giving society that recognizes the cumulative support of the MCC Foundation over a donor’s lifetime. The society recognizes donors at three giving levels.
