MAC Foundation Launches Annual Enhancement Grant Campaign
PARK HILLS, MO – Mineral Area College (MAC) provides quality, affordable education and has changed the course of countless students’ lives and strengthened the local workforce by preparing highly skilled and employable graduates.
MAC’s commitment to educational excellence is dependent on providing a curriculum built upon industry standards and staying up to date on rapidly changing technology. These fundamental keys ensure that MAC graduates have the best opportunities for success. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) also recognizes the high cost for meeting the dynamic needs of students and provides a matching grant opportunity of $3-to-$1 for the development and expansion of quality career education.
Mineral Area College Foundation is appealing to the community to help keep the college on the leading edge of preparing students for the workforce by donating to the annual Enhancement Grant fundraising campaign, underway now through December 31, 2021. Each year, the campaign provides a large portion of the funds required to purchase state-of-the-art equipment, curriculum, and training for students in career and technical programs. Donations to MAC Foundation’s Enhancement Grant campaign are eligible for the DESE $3-to-$1 match; so up to $400 in purchasing power is generated for every $100 raised.
“The last several years we have been able to purchase nearly $200,000 worth of up-to-date equipment, curriculum and training programs annually,” says Kevin Thurman, MAC Executive Director of Development. “These advances could not be possible without the generous giving of donors from our community.”
Thurman says this year it’s even easier to give with new and improved online giving platform.
“Donors will find that our new giving portal is secure and easy to use,” said Thurman. “From one-time gifts, to payments for fundraising events, or setting up a recurring monthly gift, the MAC Foundation donation site makes it convenient and easy to submit a gift to impact the lives of students.”
