MCCC Foundation Athletics Committee Announces Matching Gift Challenge and Rescheduling of the Inaugural Athletics Hall of Fame Celebration 

Local donors are matching donations through Dec. 31

West Windsor, N.J. - Out of concern for the safety and well-being of their community, Mercer County Community College (MCCC) and the MCCC Foundation Athletics Committee have made the decision to reschedule the college’s Inaugural Athletics Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Trenton Country Club.

Originally scheduled for November 2020, the induction ceremony will honor three of the college’s national championship teams and 15 individuals who have made exceptional contributions as players, coaches or administrators to Mercer’s more than half-century of sports excellence. All proceeds from the event will go toward vital scholarship support for Mercer’s student athletes and improvement of the college’s athletic facilities.

In response to the rescheduling, two anonymous local donors have launched a Matching Gift Challenge to triple all gifts (including the popular “Name Your Scholarship” donations) made to the Athletics Hall of Fame campaign from now through December 31, 2020. For every dollar contributed, the anonymous donors will contribute a dollar, up to $10,000 per donor, with a goal of raising $30,000 in total.

According to one of the donors, “Although I am disappointed by the postponement of the event, my hope is that this challenge will inspire individual and corporate donors to step up their support for our student athletes and triple the value of their gifts by making contributions to the campaign prior to the end of this calendar year.”

Donations to the MCCC Athletics Hall of Fame campaign are fully tax deductible. The impact to the student athletes will be tripled for gifts made by December 31st. For example:


  • $10 becomes $30, which covers the registration fees for one student
  • $200 becomes $600, which covers the tuition for a three-credit course
  • $800 becomes $2,400, which covers full-time tuition for one semester (12 credits)


Gifts can be made online at Any checks mailed to the MCCC Foundation should be marked “Athletics Hall of Fame Match.”

The Mercer County Community College Vikings are members of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XIX and the Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC). Mercer’s storied athletics history includes 14 national championship teams, (8 in men’s soccer, 4 in women’s tennis, and 2 in men’s basketball), with almost 250 student athletes achieving NJCAA All-American status and hundreds more gaining Region XIX and GSAC honors. In addition, over the past decade more than 50 Viking student athletes have been recognized as NJCAA Academic All-Americans. The MCCC Athletics Hall of Fame was created to honor exceptional teams and outstanding individuals.
