STAR Power Women's Giving Initiative

STAR Power is the MCC Foundation’s women’s giving initiative. Inspired by a generous challenge, the women of the MCC Board of Directors launched STAR Power in 2013 to raise money in support of single mothers pursuing their education at MCC. Each year, thousands of parents in the Rochester community strive to attain an education in order to provide a better life for their families. By helping single parents overcome financial barriers and complete their studies, we are helping children and strengthening our community. Thank you for your support of this important initiative.

Many employers have matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees - some companies may also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, check with your company's Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching. Your Human Resources department will provide you with a matching gift form to complete and send to the MCC Foundation at 228 E. Main Street, Rochester, NY 14604.
