scholarships and Other Ways to Support MCLA

Creating a Named Scholarship: Numerous students who would otherwise be unable to afford college have achieved their dreams, thanks to the support of our donors. In addition to financial aid, MCLA currently awards nearly 100 scholarships to talented and deserving students, made possible by generous donations of alumni and friends – and the list continues to grow. One-time named scholarships can be awarded through a $1,000 donation. An endowed fund that will provide scholarships in perpetuity can be established for as little as $10,000. Please consider establishing your own scholarship, or one in honor or memory of a loved one.

Sponsoring a Bench: MCLA’s bench program seeks donors interested in making a lasting impression on campus. Benches are placed on campus and cared for in perpetuity. These are a wonderful way to honor a loved one or make a gift in their memory. Your $2,500 donation allows you to have the bench installed, provides a brass plaque with wording of your choosing, and supports perpetual care for the bench.

Planting a Tree: MCLA’s tree program allows donors interested in adding to the beauty of campus to provide a tree in honor or memory of a loved one. Your $500 donation for planting the tree includes a brass plaque with wording of your choosing to be placed in front of the tree.

For more information about any of the giving opportunities above, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 413.662.5224 or advancement@mcla.edu.
