Why Give?

Madisonville Community College is a vital educational, economic, and arts programming resource for our western Kentucky communities. The college provides higher education opportunities for students which helps them earn an associate degree from a high need occupational area and go directly into the workplace as a registered nurse, an industrial technician, or welder. MCC also provides an accessible avenue to earn valuable credits before transferring to a four-year school.

A gift to MCC is an investment in the lives of students, businesses, and our communities who benefit from comprehensive services that the Advancement Office and Advising and Transfer Center can offer. Our success would not be possible without the generous financial support of alumni, friends, and local businesses who value a strong, affordable college education right here in western Kentucky.
