Giving Options

There are many ways to give back to MCC and increase the impact public higher education has on our community. Please consider the following giving options available through the MCC Foundation:

Establish an endowment

Endowments are donated funds that are invested in perpetuity. Principal-generated earnings fulfill the scholarship fund’s charitable intent as established by the donor when the gift is made. If you are eager to see your gift impact lives now and in the future, establishing an endowment is a wise choice.

Make a gift in honor or in memory of someone

To make your gift, call 585.292.3680, send your gift (check or money order made payable to the MCC Foundation) to MCC Foundation, 1057 East Henrietta Road, Rochester, NY 14623, or give online at monroecc.edu.

Consider a gift-in-kind, gifts of property or planned giving

Gifts to the MCC Foundation take on many forms, from unique auction items to real estate. Planned giving is the process of incorporating charitable giving into an overall personal estate plan. Through careful planning and support from the MCC Foundation, you can achieve your philanthropic goals and benefit your personal financial position, supplement your retirement or provide additional support to your family.  

Benefit from a Charitable Gift Annuity

The MCC Foundation’s Charitable Gift Annuity program is ideal for those who want to maintain or increase their income while making a gift to support public higher education at MCC.

A gift annuity is an agreement between a donor and the MCC Foundation in which the donor transfers an asset to the Foundation and, in return, the Foundation makes lifetime payments to the donor. Benefits of a charitable gift annuity can be impressive. Donors receive an immediate income tax deduction and avoid upfront capital gains tax upon transfer. 

Contact Mark Pastorella ’90, chief development officer, at 585.292.3689 or mpastorella@monroecc.edu for more information.
