Giving to the Foundation

Why to give

Ensuring that your gift will continue for years to come creates a reliable source of income for the programs and initiatives most important to you. All gifts can be made one time or on a recurring basis: monthly, quarterly, or annually.


Where to give


The Foundation and Alumni Association wants you to feel good about your gift. You can designate your funds toward any program on campus, from athletics to welding and everything in between. If you don't see what you're looking for on our donation form, please let us know.



A history of limited opportunity is common among our students. Most are economically disadvantaged, first in their families to attend college, or single parents creating their own opportunities. Returning veterans, long-time learners, and people with disabilities are among those who choose Mt. SAC as their institution of higher education because of the wide-ranging programs we offer and the supportive environment we provide.

One of the direct ways you can impact the Mt. SAC student experience is through our scholarship program. Since financial hardship remains the largest obstacle our students face in pursuit of their educational dreams, we address that challenge head-on by providing scholarship support. Over the years, thanks to many generous people, the Mt. SAC Foundation has awarded millions of dollars in scholarship funds to hardworking and deserving students. 



We organize campaigns to target funding toward major campus projects. You can designate funds specifically for these projects.

You may be managing a department budget, sharing your academic passions, keeping the campus clean, volunteering for a planning committee, or serving on a board. The students, faculty, staff, and administrators are all part of the fabric that makes up Mt. SAC. At the Foundation and Alumni Association, we know that we all embody the spirit of Mt. SAC’s mission to help students achieve their educational dreams.

Here's another way you can be part of that! Join your Mt. SAC colleagues in demonstrating your passion and commitment to Mt. SAC students through one of our giving initiatives. 


Planned Giving

Planned giving can create a lasting legacy while offering peace of mind and a wide variety of tax benefits. We encourage you to consider the Mt. SAC Foundation and Alumni Association in your estate and charitable gift planning.
