president's circle emblem

To be successful in our mission, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses who believe in the power of education to change lives, families, and communities.

The President’s Circle offers an opportunity for you to join a select group of prominent business leaders, friends, and alumni whose annual unrestricted gifts of $1,000 or more make a transformational impact on Moraine Park students.

Your leadership gift will give the College maximum flexibility to impact students’ lives in the following areas:


A substantial number of Moraine Park students have limited financial means.  Your generosity helps to ensure that no student is denied an education due to a lack of financial resources.  At graduation, Moraine Park students will be prepared to better provide for themselves and their families, and will take their knowledge and skills to local employers ensuring the health and vitality of our businesses and community.

Student Emergency Fund

By providing a hand up in time of need, you help promising students remain enrolled and focused on the educational opportunities ahead of them instead of the challenges that threaten to hold them back.  Because grants to cover unforeseen financial emergencies do not have to be paid back, you empower students to stay the course to graduation.

Academic Program Support

Nothing is more essential to developing our future workforce than the quality of our academic programs.  Through your investment, you enrich students’ learning experiences, provide faculty with the resources they need to provide excellent instruction, and enhance the reputation of Moraine Park as a critical partner in fulfilling the talent needs of our region.

Moraine Park students are exceptional; not only in their academics but in their character and ambition.  By investing in our future leaders, our families, businesses, and communities will be stronger.

Keisha—Accounting graduate

“Enrolling in college as an adult was scary, but it was totally worth it. Moraine Park supported me throughout my education and gave me the tools to find success. I am especially grateful for the scholarships that allowed me to take extra credits and finish my degree in two years.”


Cheyanne—Criminal Justice student

“My whole life has been dedicated to working towards becoming a police officer. I am able to make that more of a reality and a lot less stressful because of receiving a Moraine Park scholarship. As a full-time student who also works two jobs to make ends meet, this scholarship goes a long way.”

David Baldus—Retired business owner

“It is a privilege to be able to support Moraine Park students through membership in the President’s Circle. By gaining a quality education, students set a better course for themselves and their families and, in many cases, break the cycle of poverty. It’s a win-win for students, families and our community.”
