Marine

The Masco Corporation Foundation has made a corporate gift of $250,000 to WCC—the largest corporate gift the College has ever received.

To help support a growing community of military veterans who attend WCC, the Foundation has committed $100,000 of the $250,000 gift to support the WCC Veterans Center.

The money will be used to develop the online “Tools for Vet Success” course, which provides veterans exposure to career opportunities and access to on-campus counseling and support services.

The grant will also provide veterans enrolled in the WCC Construction Technology program with a Masco sponsored toolbox.

Foundation Looks Within for Support

Last winter, for the first time the WCC Foundation couldn’t offer scholarships to all qualified WCC students who applied. Over 500 WCC students depend on Foundation scholarships to continue their education each semester. Times are tough for a lot of people, but many WCC faculty and staff realize how lucky they are to have jobs here and give to students who need a little help. They are some of the most generous supporters of the Foundation. Last year, 127 WCC employees gave money to the Foundation.
