With the help of Attorney Shon Cook and Scherdel Sales and Technology in Muskegon, we began the Step it Up program to help some of the area 501c3 organizations out in a couple of ways. First, let's extend the platform to them so they can share the work they do and why they do it with the audience. Kind of what we're all about to begin with. Next, a little financial help can never hurt so we've managed to set aside $1000 a month to be given to the featured organizations to help out a little. If calculations are correct, this months presentation puts at $21,000 to local non profit agencies.
A 501c3 you may not even know was a thing....the Foundation for Muskegon Community College! Used as a "Bridge to Higher Education" the Foundation for Muskegon Community College helps provide more scholarships, enhance support services, and improve campus facilities. Gifts of any amount are appreciated and will help meet community needs and promote student success.
Dr. John Selmon and Chief Advancement Officer Susan Foley join us to talk about how the Foundation for MCC helps the school improve the learning experience for students. Take a listen.
From being a part of adding the equipment to the amazing new Sturrus Technology Center to helping in some of the more basic things students need to achieve....like a health and wellness center, a food pantry and ways to break down barriers to success Muskegon Community College relies on this fund to help maintain the low cost of tuition for students to be able to get a great education, close to home and then be able to put down roots and continue to grow here in Muskegon or, head out to show the rest of the world the amazing people we turn out.
