The Madison College Foundation was established in 1973 to support Madison College and its students.
The Foundation solicits, manages, and distributes gifts from alumni, corporations, foundations, community organizations, and other friends of the College. These generous gifts enhance the College's ability to provide an accessible, high quality education to students and help develop a highly skilled workforce for South Central Wisconsin.
Overall, the Foundation has disbursed more than $14 million in financial assistance to more than 38,000 Madison College students.
Madison College derives most of its funding from tax revenues and student fees. There are many needs that cannot be met from these sources, including student scholarships and the development of new programs and projects to advance the College's mission. You can help individual students, the College, and the wider community served by the College through your gifts to the Madison College Foundation.
Of course, the greatest benefit is the knowledge that you have helped Madison College students to receive a better education, whether for a skilled trade or for college transfer. You can also pay tribute to significant persons and organizations through a named scholarship, loan or grant fund or endowment fund. Donations to Madison College are tax-deductible. And, for some donors, giving through wills and trusts can help with estate planning.
