As student needs continue to outweigh available resources, Mid Michigan College relies on generous gifts from friends of the College to support students, grow programs, and improve facilities.
Since 1980, the Mid Michigan College Foundation has been supporting the College in its commitment to excellence and student success by leveraging gifts made by friends of the College, alumni, foundations, and corporations from across the state.
Now more than ever, philanthropic funds are needed to provide financial assistance to students, support educational and cultural program development, encourage academic excellence and faculty enrichment, and assist with continued improvements to College facilities.
To enhance its fundraising efforts, the Foundation has added two new team members, who each have years of experience in guiding decisions that shape the future and developing funding resources to support college-wide efforts.
“We’re excited to welcome two new experienced development professionals to the Mid Michigan College Foundation team,” noted Tom Olver, Executive Director of the Mid Foundation. “The future is incredibly bright for Mid and with these key staffing additions, the Foundation is prepared to support the College’s development and alumni engagement efforts like never before.”
