Mission and History
The mission of the Midland College Foundation, which was created in 1973, is:
1. To advance education through financial support of Midland College, including all of its departments, by the improvement of its research, teaching, scholarship and facilities.
2. To receive, hold, manage, and control property, whether real, personal or mixed, acquired by the Corporation by donation, gift, grant, devise, bequest, purchase or other means.
3. To transfer or use all or any part of the corpus or income for the benefit of Midland College in accordance with the general or specific purposes stipulated by the donors, grantors, or testators, or, in the absence of such stipulations, for such uses as may be determined by the Board of Directors.
4. To promptly distribute all net income in excess of operating requirements to promote the educational advancement of Midland College.
The foundation directs major gift fundraising activities and provides asset management services in support of educational excellence at Midland College in Midland, Texas. We serve donors (individuals, corporations, and organizations) and the college (administrators, faculty, staff, and students). We are responsible for soliciting, receipting, acknowledging, and managing endowments and other gifts, and disbursing funds to benefit educational service programs at Midland College. The foundation is a private, nonprofit corporation.
