Please note: Processing fees are no longer automatically taken out of your credit card donation, meaning the Foundation receives your full gift.
However, the donation form now has a pop-up that will ask you to give an additional amount to your gift to support the external processing platform. This is optional, and the Foundation DOES NOT receive those funds and we cannot see if you have opted to contribute to it. Please feel free to say no to this request.
This is our important general fund. Unrestricted gifts allow the Madison College Foundation to address critical unmet funding needs and the growing needs our students face. A gift to this fund provides the greatest flexibility to deliver funding to Madison College students and provide community outreach.
Smart Future Scholarship Fund
This is our important general scholarship fund. All students who meet the Foundation’s minimum requirements* are eligible for these funds. This allows flexibility to award scholarships to students who have the greatest need based on the actual applicant pool each semester.
Student Emergency Support Fund
This fund is designed to help provide needed relief to those who are financially vulnerable and face unforeseen obstacles.
