Day of Giving

The 2017 Day of Giving was a success!

In a single day, you donated enough to cover several full scholarships or books for dozens of students.  Your donations make a HUGE difference to our students.  Because of you, students who may not have been able to attend college get that chance.  Because of you, students who were planning on taking classes part time can now take a full-time load.  Because of you, our students have the opportunities they need to succeed.

Thank you for doing more for MGCCC students! 


If you missed the day of giving, it is not too late! You can still support our scholarship fund today

About the Day Of Giving!

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College has served the communities of South Mississippi for 106 years. Whether it is in traditional college classes or a career, technical, workforce or adult education program, Gulf Coast’s goal is to provide the very best learning opportunities for South Mississippi residents.

A vital piece of meeting that goal is providing scholarships through the MGCCC Foundation. The organization oversees a variety of scholarships for students, awarding $515,276.24 to more than 700 students during 2016.

And you are the one that makes these scholarships happen.  Through your donations to the Foundation, the college is able to offer educational opportunities to so many students – students like Brianna Purnell, Ana Ochoa and David Galle (pictured above).  Your donation to the MGCCC Foundation is important because it benefits everyone concerned – from you and your neighbors to thousands of Gulf Coast students and your local community.
