AnnuAl 2010—2011 RepoRt THank you The Mt. Hood Community College Foundation, through the hard work and generosity of many, raises private support for the students, programs and priorities of the College. The Foundation Board is a group of diverse community volunteer leaders dedicated to the success of the College and on behalf of my fellow Foundation volunteers—I am pleased to provide this annual report to our donors and friends for the 2010-11 fiscal year. The MHCC Foundation was the beneficiary of the third and final year of support from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation scholarship matching challenge. The MHCC Foundation raised the maximum of $120,000 in additional funds to receive a $120,000 match from the Miller Foundation which created 40 new scholarships for the 2011-12 academic year. As you’ll read in the feature story on page six, through three years of Miller support we have raised a total of $692,000 in new or increased scholarship gifts through this initiative which has assisted hundreds of MHCC students in achieving their dreams. Our May 2011 Springtime in Paris auction was extremely successful (see pages four and five) and it was incredibly fun to stroll the streets of Paris while helping raise needed scholarship dollars for students. Mark your calendars now for May 19, 2012, when the Foundation’s 40th anniversary of this event features the Power of the Dream dinner and auction – a night that you will not want to miss! Wendy Vondrak The Foundation also recognizes the high energy impact of past MHCC president John J. “Ski” Sygielski on our Foundation activities as well as his leadership and direction for the College. We are very enthusiastic about the new leadership of President Mike Hay and appreciate his advocacy for expanding opportunities to support MHCC students in our community through private support. The Foundation continues to be fiscally healthy and prudent with donor assets. But most importantly, we work hard to provide scholarships to MHCC students and funding for important College programs and projects. I encourage you to join us and be involved with the Foundation. As you’ll read in the stories that follow, every single gift to the MHCC Foundation has a tremendous impact on MHCC students.
