In this quickly changing world, Mid's students need support more than ever as they work hard to get a degree and take a step forward in life. Donations fill the financial gap and allow students to study their text books, not their checkbooks.

Give Today . . . Influence Tomorrow.

The Foundation was established in 1987 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and has a governing Board of Directors made up of local community members. The Foundation harnesses the power of individual gifts by placing them in an endowment fund that will provide for the needs of Mid and our students for years to come.

An unrestricted gift is a contribution that is given to the Mid Michigan College Foundation without any restrictions on its use.

Restricted gifts, on the other hand, are earmarked for specific purposes such as a named or endowed scholarship or building construction.

Although both restricted and unrestricted gifts are welcome, unrestricted gifts are of critical importance because they allow the College to meet its greatest needs.

Contributions of assets can include cash, stocks and bonds, life insurance, mutual fund shares, artwork, real estate, and retirement plan assets.

An endowment is an efficient way to assist future generations of students because once established, it is self-perpetuating. When an individual makes a gift of $10,000 or more to the Mid Michigan College Foundation, a new endowment fund is established, and the assets are immediately invested for future growth.

Contributions are accepted for almost any area of the College. Unrestricted gifts are used where the need is greatest. Restricted gifts are often designated for scholarships, program development, improved facilities, technology, or academic excellence.

Several options are available including Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Pooled Income Funds, and Charitable Lead Trusts.

Contact your financial advisor for more information.

There are several ways to provide a bequest to Mid. If you already have a will, you can remember Mid Michigan College by adding a codicil (amendment) to it.

The Foundation's portfolio is managed by an Investment Committee and guided by professional investment managers who work within the guidelines of the Investment and Distribution Policy.
