Gym button w logo.jpgFrom the moment a student steps on campus, Manhattan Christian College is focused on helping them become the leader God wants for them to be.  We strive for nothing less than excellence because it’s what our future generations deserve—not only our students, but those they will impact. 

The needs of today’s college students, along with the learning process have dynamically changed.  With your help, MCC will be ready and relevant to reach the Next Generation.

Now is the time to provide the tools needed to reach and retain more students.

The Big Picture
MCC prepares Christian leaders to penetrate the world with the Gospel regardless of their chosen profession.   What 3 tools are needed to reach more students?

1. An improved first impression. 
Today’s students (and their parents) equate quality with what they see.  Enhancements to the campus courtyard and parking lot will better reflect the value of the education and the personal care students receive at MCC.
2. A student life multi-purpose facility.
MCC needs a facility large enough to hold its own special events as well as support the athletic program.  More than 52% of the student body participates in a varsity sport or intramurals throughout the year and college access to city facilities limits the programming that may be offered. A gym legitimizes the student experience on campus.
3. Technology and security enhancements. 
The teaching tools in the classrooms, the computers in the library, and the implementation of an I.D. card system are required to keep MCC user-friendly and safe.  Wireless access and Internet speed are no longer optional as the 24/7 demands increase with each student’s multiple devices.

The Goal
These projects will require $3M in over and above commitments over the next three years.Donate Now button2.jpg

Matching Gifts
Many corporations match their employees’ gifts to Manhattan Christian College with an equal or greater corporate contribution.  Information on matching gifts is usually available through a company human resource department.

Gifts of Securities (Stocks)
Gifts of appreciated stocks or bonds entitle a contributor to two income tax benefits:  avoidance of capital gains, and the use of the security’s fair market value on the date of the gift for the income tax charitable deduction.

Gifts of Real Estate
You may donate a residence, farmland, or other real estate to Manhattan Christian College.  Gifts of real estate may offer considerable tax savings.  The gift can be made immediately available to the College or you may wish to donate the property but retain use of it for your lifetime.

Gifts of Life Insurance
Individual life insurance policies, either new or no longer needed, may be transferred to Manhattan Christian College.  The College may then become the owner and beneficiary to receive an income tax deduction or MCC may simply be named as a beneficiary of a policy.

Gifts In Kind
Works of art, rare books, equipment and furnishings that further the mission of Manhattan Christian College may also be donated with approval.  The allowable deduction for a gift of such property depends upon its related use and appraised value.

A bequest or will is the most frequently utilized method of support in America.  Bequest affords a way for you to express your specific philanthropic wishes.  A bequest can include a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the estate or a specific asset.

In a trust arrangement, property is held by a trustee for the benefit of another.  The trustee holds legal title to the property and the beneficiary is the institution who is benefitted.  There are a variety of trust types:  irrevocable trust, revocable trust, living trust, and testamentary trust.

MCC's membership in the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability is a commitment to integrity, accountability, and transparency.
