Give to Medgar Evers College Education Foundation (940 hits)


Did you know that of the 7,000 students enrolled at Medgar Evers College, 58% are recipients of Pell grants? Pell is a need-based grant awarded to low-income students attending college. Despite Pell, TAP and other need-based financial aid assistance, Medgar Evers College has an estimated 300 students that are reported homeless.

Making education a primary focus is a major challenge for students who are dealing with issues surrounding poverty.

What are we doing about it?




Help MEC design a hunger-free community


for our students!

Medgar Evers College is introducing a Campus Food Pantry and an emergency assistance grant program to help fight hunger on our campus. This is a great chance to make a difference in the MEC community. Please join us in our efforts to help our students in need.

The Medgar Evers College Educational Foundation strives to raise at least $50,000 this year to stock the pantry and provide food vouchers throughout the year. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Please consider encouraging your friends, family and colleagues to join us to work towards ending hunger on the MEC campus this year.



Please give today!
