MACC Foundation

In the late summer of 1927, when Moberly Junior College opened its doors, it was because clear-sighted citizens saw education as the way to a better life for their sons and daughters.

That keen vision holds true today 80 plus years later!

MACC opens the doors to a better life for hundreds of students each year and offers abundant opportunities for success to members of the communities it serves.

The Moberly Area Community College Foundation exists for the purpose of advancing, assisting and supporting MACC in areas that are not supported by state and federal taxes or student tuition. To maintain excellence in MACC programs and to meet unforeseen needs, funds must come from sources outside of the institution.
The Foundation is that source!

Charitable Giving Now and in the Future

Over and above giving to Moberly Area Community College because you love the mission and what you may have received, there are some ways of looking at how and when to give. To give now you may wish to look at:

Appreciated Property: If you have something of value, i.e., stocks, real estate, collectibles that if sold you would owe taxes on the gain, giving (transferring) the property to MACC may entitle you to an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gift and eliminate those taxes. Your immediate deduction may be limited, but you can carry that deduction over to future years.

Bequests: You may easily give cash, property, or even an interest in a business to MACC upon your death. You may be able to leave this property in whole or in part without rewriting your will or trust by simply adding a codicil to existing documents. Ask your attorney or ask us for a referral to someone who can help you.

Charitable Annuities: You may gift property into an annuity and receive an income for the rest of your life (or another beneficiary’s life). Whatever is left over comes to MACC after that. In most cases you even get a current income tax deduction for a portion of that gift. If this interests you, we can make a referral to help you look at this option.

Wealth Replacement: Creatively using life insurance to fund or replace a gift to MACC could possibly be the best of both worlds. You can fund a future gift with today’s dollars and receive a potential tax deduction today. This way your children or grandchildren won’t be worried about their inheritance when they see you giving your assets to charity.

Memorial Gifts: To remember someone by making a donation to the Foundation in that person’s name is a special way to give. The family of the deceased will be notified of your generous gift.


Combinations: Many times there isn’t just one best answer, and you must look at a combination of the above. Let us work with you, your estate planner, and your other advisors to make sure it’s a win, win situation.
In all of these situations, please seek competent legal and tax advice, as many of your choices are irrevocable. All gifts to the Moberly Area Community College Foundation are administered by the Foundation and are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

MACC Foundation Faculty/Staff Mini-Grant Program


The purpose of the Moberly Area Community College Foundation’s Faculty/Staff Mini-Grants program is to support faculty and staff by funding innovative and creative projects that would not normally be provided for in the operating budget of the College. Mini-grant projects should enrich standard curriculum and directly enhance learning opportunities for students of Moberly Area Community College.

Grant Awards

Up to four mini-grants will be awarded per semester and may vary in amount. The Committee may award the budgeted amount available, as application need requires. One grant may be funded using the entire semester’s budget, if so determined by the Committee. Faculty and staff may apply for more than one grant per semester but each application must reflect a different project. A person may be awarded more than one grant but the total award may not exceed $1,500 in any twenty-four month period. An individual as well as a team or department working together may apply for a grant, but the maximum grant awarded will be $1500 for a specific project.


Any full-time faculty or certified/classified staff member currently employed by Moberly Area Community College is eligible for a mini-grant. Adjunct faculty may submit proposals in conjunction with full-time faculty or staff or with their supervisor’s approval. Examples of eligible projects include equipment, software, research, supplemental materials, enrichment tools, speakers, professional development, and creative projects.


  • Mini-grant projects must directly impact student learning and/or assist staff in operating their departments more efficiently.
  • The program is not intended to provide on-going support. Ordinarily, this is a one-time funding opportunity.
  • Tangible items purchased with the grant funds become the property of Moberly Area Community College.
  • This grant is not intended to fund projects, materials or travel that are normally part of an instructor or staff member’s budget.


  • The mini-grants will be awarded twice a year for the fall and spring semester under the guidance of the MACC Foundation Faculty/Staff Mini-Grant Committee. Mini-grants are not awarded for the summer semester.
  • An official application must be submitted to the MACC Foundation Faculty/Staff Mini Grant Committee by the following deadline dates:


March 3 Spring Semester Grants Awarded by April 7
October 1 Fall Semester Grants Awarded by November 1


  • At the completion of the project, a detailed summary report and photographs, where practical, must be submitted to the MACC Foundation Faculty/Staff Mini Grant Committee.
