The Annual Scholarship Gala is the Foundation’s primary fundraiser. Gala donations go directly toward scholarships that help provide a quality education to many deserving students. We were disappointed that we had to cancel our in-person Gala, previously scheduled for May 1, 2020. We are, however, thrilled to announce our first ever Virtual Gala, which will stream on August 4th! With so many people affected by the pandemic, scholarships are more important now than ever before. We want to ensure that students are able to enroll this fall and pursue their educational goals.
On behalf of the MGCCC Board of Trustees, Dr. Mary Graham and the Executive Council, the Foundation board of directors, our incredible students, alumni, all Gulf Coast faculty, staff, and friends… THANK YOU for your continued support. We simply couldn’t do it without you.

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Foundation held its annual Scholarship Gala on May 20 at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi. The annual event raised over $1,000,000 for MGCCC student scholarships.
At the gala, Joseph C. Canizaro was named recipient of the 2019 Hornsby Award. The Hornsby Award, named after MGCCC alumnae Claire Sekul Hornsby, is given annually to a leader, trailblazer and outstanding supporter of the college.
Funds raised during the gala provide scholarships through the MGCCC Foundation for students who need financial assistance. MGCCC provides many scholarships annually to ensure students are able to reach their educational goals.
Thanks to our 2019 Sponsors
