Whether you work directly with students every day or provide indirect support for their experience, you know better than anyone the great potential these students hold. Fulfilling this potential requires exceptional instruction, mentoring and dedicated support from committed employees like you. It also requires resources.
As you probably know, tuition revenue alone doesn’t cover all of the costs of providing an ideal learning environment. This is why the college is launching MCC Works, a comprehensive fundraising campaign seeking private external support. And as we introduce the campaign to the Greater Kansas City philanthropic and business communities, we want to show them our commitment as an MCC family of employees.
We can make a statement to potential funding partners that MCC and our students are worthy of their support by having every employee participate in what we’re calling the MCC Works Family Campaign. The goal of the campaign isn’t to raise a specific dollar amount. Instead, it is to strive for 100 percent employee participation in providing philanthropic support to MCC, at any amount, and to any area. It is a powerful statement when those closest to MCC provide financial support for students and their college experience, and it is a great endorsement to potential funding partners that we believe in our students, our mission, and the campaign. In many cases, the percentage of employees who give is a measure used by external funders to determine if those closest to the institution support the broader institutional vision.
