Support MCLA

Our success is due in large part to the efforts of alumni and friends who continue to enhance our institution in innumerable ways. We take great pride in our ability to offer a quality, inexpensive higher education experience. Please contribute to this mission, knowing that your gift makes a difference and is greatly valued and appreciated. You can:

Donate to the Alumni Fund, where 100% of your gift goes to student financial aid.

Support a specific scholarship.

Memorialize a loved one or remember us in your will.

Sponsor a bench.

Make a general contribution to the College.

We invite you to learn more about these and other donation opportunities by contacting the Advancement Office at 413.662.5229.

Annual Fund: All gifts to the Annual Fund support student financial aid. MCLA's annual giving program includes gifts made by alumni, parents, and friends of the College. The MCLA fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30. Giving to the Annual Fund is the most direct way to support MCLA. All gifts are appreciated. What's most important is participation since every gift to the Annual Fund is a "vote" in support of MCLA. 

Leaving MCLA in Your Will: You can choose from many types of planned giving opportunities. It can be as simple as naming the College in your will or creating a Charitable Remainder Trust. Including a gift in your will is one of the easiest ways to ensure that our services continue into the future. Other options include gift annuities, life insurance gifts, and estate plans. Through a bequest to MCLA, you can give a gift that fits your financial and philanthropic goals - and that you can be proud of for years to come.

Scholarships: Numerous students who would otherwise be unable to afford college have achieved their dreams, thanks to our donors. In addition to financial aid, the College currently awards nearly 100 scholarships to talented and deserving students, made possible by generous donations of alumni and friends - and the list continues to grow. Please consider establishing your own scholarship, or one in memory or in honor of someone.

Sponsoring a Bench: MCLA's bench program seeks donors  interested in making a lasting impression on campus. Benches are placed on campus and cared for in perpetuity.
