Give to the Foundation

Giving to the Mid-State Technical College Foundation, Inc., is one way to pay it forward and put your hard-earned resources to work, helping others achieve success and independence.

Mid-State transforms lives, creating "career-ready" employees who make an immediate impact in the community. But the students in our district start out with greater financial hurdles than almost any others in the state—in fact, nearly 80 percent of them receive some form of financial assistance to make school a possibility. The success of our mission comes down to generous gifts from people like you—who help keep our students enrolled and working toward a brighter future for themselves and our shared communities.

Alumni Connections

There are many great reasons for Mid-State alumni to stay in touch. Share your contact information so we can keep track of your successes after graduation and share resources and news with you.
