Matching Gifts

  The Charlotte W. Newcombe Challenge

A $50,000 challenge grant awarded to Mercer County Community College from the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation challenges the college to raise the required matching funds, all going toward endowed scholarships for students in the health professions. If you are interested in the future of our healthcare system and would like to double the value of your gift, please consider making a contribution to the Newcombe challenge. > details
When you make a gift to the MCCC Foundation, you can increase its amount, significance, and impact by taking advantage of a corporate matching gift program.

Thousands of private companies and corporations give generously to not-for-profit educational institutions each year through an employee matching gift program as part of their employee benefit package. Some provide matching gifts for gifts made by employee spouses and retirees.

These programs allow you, as an employee, to direct your organization's corporate philanthropy to the benefit of MCCC by matching your personal gift.

Matching gift programs benefit both the employer and the employee. They are a strong employee incentive and an important boost to morale. By matching employee gifts, businesses are assured that they are supporting causes important to their employees and their community.

Inquire at your human resources or employee benefits office to determine if your company will match your gift. There are also some foundations and associations that provide matching funds.

Designated Giving: Contributions made for a specific purpose are placed in restricted fund accounts and used only for that purpose. Minimum amounts of $100 are required to establish and award a designated scholarship in any academic year. In the case where funds are donated and the amount exceeds the desired purpose for any given year, the remaining funds earn interest. Designated scholarships are many times created to honor someone, memorialize a special person, or provide support for students preparing for a certain career. Unrestricted Giving: Contributions made to the MCCC Foundation for general, unspecified purposes are classified as unrestricted giving. These gifts are used to address important needs of the college, its programs and its students. Unrestricted donations for scholarships become part of the General Scholarship Fund which provides awards to students based on financial need. Priority areas for awarding General Scholarships are identified each year by the MCCC Financial Aid Office and are adopted each year through voting action by the MCCC Foundation. All General Fund Scholarships are awarded in the academic year the donation is received.
