Dear Friend of the Foundation,
Did you know more than 4 in 10 U.S. undergraduate students attend community colleges. Many of the students are 18 to 25, the traditional age for college students, but Fulton-Montgomery Community College also attracts adults who want to improve their existing professional expertise, learn new skills, or completely change careers.
Community colleges provide affordable educational opportunities to students from all walks of life. This ultimately creates greater equity in communities. As a supporter of Fulton-Montgomery, you have already played a key role in extending education to a greater number of people in your county, town, and neighborhood.
Your continued support is more important now more than ever!
In a Spring 2021 survey conducted by the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE), nearly 1 in 3 community college students described their personal financial situation as worse than it was before the pandemic. The situation is more dire for older students and students from traditionally marginalized communities.
As Donor to the FM Foundation, you equip those students most at risk during times of economic hardship with the capacity to continue their education. You make possible the nearly one hundred scholarships that keep hard-working, hopeful students enrolled and invested in their own futures.
Your contributions provide support for special programming and technological advancements that make our graduates more marketable during future economic downturns.
In the past year, your time, talents, and resources have contributed to a cutting edge Radiology Lab, an innovative FAM Financial Technology Center, renovations to the RAO theater, and numerous other projects.
More than that, your contributions come back to you. They come back when a student leaves with the training she needs to become the innovative brewer that puts your favorite neighborhood pub on the map. They come back when a student leaves with the skills and technological savvy to become the competent radiologist you rely on in a medical crisis. Your contributions don’t just make life better for deserving students and dedicated staff at Fulton Montgomery. They make life better for the whole community.
Thank you for your generosity.
The FM Foundation
