Make a Contribution to Honor a Love One

Celebrate a special occasion or remember a loved one by honoring them with a gift to MVCC Foundation.

Consider Gift Planning

Please remember MVCC in your estate plan or by making a gift that makes payments back to you before benefitting MVCC. For additional information, visit our online Guide to Gift Planning or contact Frank DuRoss at (315) 792-5526 or fduross@mvcc.edu.

Gifts In Kind

Gifts in kind are a form of giving in which, instead of giving money to buy goods and services, those products or services are themselves given. In the past, MVCC has received gifts in kind that include airplanes and office furnishings and equipment.

Employee Payroll Deduction

If you are an MVCC employee and wish to make your gift through payroll deduction, please contact MVCC Foundation.

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift if you or your spouse’s employer participates in a Corporate Matching Gifts program. Simply speak with your human resources or personnel office about obtaining a gift match form and include the completed form with your contribution.
