Madison College Foundation and Destination Madison Scholarship Drive

The Madison College Foundation and Destination Madison are both celebrating 50 years of impact in our community! We both support the hospitality and tourism industry, and by default, our entire community. We are teaming up to raise awareness of the continued challenges the hospitality industry has faced post-Covid and the opportunities for vibrant, well-paying careers. At the same time, we are raising funds to provide scholarships to Madison College’s related programs.

Goal: Scholarships for 50 students

Join other local companies in the Greater Madison area to sponsor 1 (or more) students looking to earn a credential in one of these areas at the amount of $500 per student.

Materials using your logo will be distributed by Madison College Foundation and Destination Madison, and your business will be tagged on social media announcements. We will solicit press coverage for this campaign. The gift and success of the campaign will be celebrated at the Destination Madison 50th Anniversary Celebration on November 29, 2023, and at the Madison College Foundation 50th Anniversary Celebration in Spring 2024.  Both events anticipate attendance of over 300 individuals.
