    MCCC Alumni & Friends Welcome, Alumni & Friends of
    Mercer County Community College

    More than 100,000 people have spent time in MCCC classrooms pursuing higher knowledge. Anyone who has ever done so -- for career preparation, general interest, career change, or professional enhancement -- can remember vividly that first semester when everything seemed to be in a whirl as our lives were turned on end by the demands of a college schedule. So many careers have begun, been enhanced, or altogether re-started and lifestyles altered because of a course, a major program of study, or a lifetime of occasional courses taken at Mercer County Community College.

    Alumni assistance is available at:

    The MCCC Alumni & Friends Association continues that lifelong connection between the college and those who have populated the college's classrooms over the years, perpetuating memories and expanding the college's spheres of influence through its primary ambassadors: former students. It increases community, government, and business interest and awareness of programs and benefits offered by the College. It also stimulates the development and advancement of the College, and assists the graduates in attaining career objectives.

    Anyone who has attended Mercer County Community College is welcomed to participate in MCCC Alumni & Friends Association functions and programs.

    Ways of Giving


    All contributions should be made

    1200 Old Trenton Road
    Trenton, NJ 08690
    Your gifts sustain the tradition of generosity fostered from one Mercer generation to the next. When reflecting on your Mercer experience, it's always nice to remember that donations from alumni, businesses, and foundations helped to make your education affordable for you. Now, your gifts can provide that same help for current and future students. That's a family tradition -- one generation helping those that follow.

    As an MCCC alumnus, you have a variety of opportunities to support your "first" alma mater. Please contact the Development, Grants & Alumni Office to discuss your interests.

    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 the MCCC Foundation. All General Fund Scholarships are awarded in the academic year the donation is received.
