In the 21st century, community colleges represent a remarkable pathway to higher education for students who have traditionally lacked access. Philanthropic support is often essential in making this opportunity possible, yet at many community colleges, no strong culture of philanthropy exists.
Our development communications audit for Montgomery County Community College included message development and sharpened media strategies. A new logo, video, and publications were used to launch the $9 million Futures Rising Campaign. The campaign closed in June 2015, having raised more than $10 million.
The campaign video won the CASE Circle of Excellence Gold award for a long-form video. SteegeThomson continues to provide staff, media, and development communications support to Montgomery County Community College.
