The Midlands Technical College Foundation provides the structure through which individuals, corporations and other private sector interests can demonstrate their support for the academic programs and economic development services offered by Midlands Technical College.
Established in 1970, the Foundation takes an active partnership role in advancing the college's community development mission within the Central Midlands region by seeking an added measure of financial and other support for college activities that enhance the quality of its educational offerings. In carrying out this role, the Foundation's Board of Trustees gives testimony to the realization that for excellence in service to be consistently achieved and maintained, private sector resources represent a critical and invaluable complement to limited public funding.
The Board of Trustees for the Foundation is composed of up to 25 individuals who are prominent in our community's business, industrial, professional and civic affairs.
