Estate of Raymond F. Damato Final Disbursement of $5.6 Million Brings Total MCC Bequest to $7.6 Million
Funding from the Damato bequest has been used to support retention grants to help continuing students remain in school, scholarships, lab and related fees, developmental courses and supplemental flexible funding as needed, as well as campus upgrades and program equipment. MCC Foundation’s holdings now exceed $11 million.
Examples of upcoming information sessions in March include Computer Game Design and Graphic Design, Personal Trainer, Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management, Occupational Therapy Assistant and other health career programs.
The retention grant program is a new need-based scholarship that offers funding for eligible continuing students to cover a semester’s initial tuition and fee bill. Of the students awarded a retention grant, more than 60 percent were able to earn their degrees and/or return for the following term.
