Welcome Friends of Gulf Coast

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Foundation is preparing for its Annual Fundraiser. Each year, the foundation raises money to fund scholarships and provide other resources that allow MGCCC students to be successful and have the best possible college experience. Your support is needed to make the 2021 fundraiser the best one yet!

This year’s celebration will include a reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine, and entertainment followed by a performance from our talented students and an award ceremony for our sponsors. Sponsorship opportunities for this event are now available and as always, your contributions help create educational opportunities for future generations of MGCCC students.

We hope you will support the students of MGCCC by becoming a sponsor of this year’s Annual Fundraiser, “Paint the Coast Gold.” Your tax-deductible contributions for this year’s fundraiser may be made to the MGCCC Foundation by returning the MGCCC Annual Scholarship Gala letter and sponsorship form or use the online sponsors’ form to donate.

Thank you for all you do to support Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and our students!

Other Ways to Give

Direct Scholarship Donations

Provide a direct donation to the MGCCC Student Success Scholarship Fund

Become a Foundation Member

A minimum investment of $250, with an option to pay over a five-year period, entitles you to become a member of the Foundation.

Memorials

Make a contribution to the MGCCC Foundation in memory of a friend or relative in lieu of floral tributes.

Walk of Honor

Purchase bricks that may be inscribed with the name of veterans, loved ones or friends. This will become a permanent part of the Perkinston Campus and the Gregory War Memorial Chapel.

Bequests, Trust Agreements and Investment Securities

Bequests allow you to memorialize a loved one by establishing, through your will, a scholarship in his or her name. A part of your estate or a particular piece of property may be invested in this way.

Trusts of many types may be worked out. Your attorney is the best person to advise you on the kind of trust to establish and the tax advantages.

Stocks and bonds held for more than six months may be the easiest and most advantageous way to invest. If the securities have gained in value, you can avoid the capital gains tax and also claim a deduction for the fair market value. If the securities have depreciated, you may sell them and invest the proceeds, since you can take a tax loss on the drop in value and also deduct the proceeds as a charitable contribution.
