Every year, we award over $500,000 in new and renewed scholarships to students from across Muskegon County. Scholarships – created by many generous donors – are awarded to support students attending college well as vocational/technical certification programs. By making higher education more accessible for hundreds of area students, we create hope and opportunity for our youth and help strengthen the future of our community. Learn more about our scholarship program at www.cffmc.org/scholarships.
The Muskegon Area Promise
The Muskegon Area Promise offers two years of free tuition to Muskegon Community College or Baker College for all eligible graduating seniors in Muskegon County. The infrastructure and funding needed to make this promise was created by a dedicated coalition led by the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District, and made up of community, school and college leaders, area businesses, donors, and the Foundation. We made a major gift to the Muskegon Area Promise and we continue to serve on the Promise Zone Authority Board.
If you’d like to make a gift to support this bold program for our community’s youth, visit our online giving page and enter “Promise” to search for the fund.
