The Marshalltown Community College Athletic Department is supported financially in many ways. The athletic department receives Iowa Valley Community College District (IVCCD) support and financial allocations from bond, levy, tuition, bookstore, student fees, donations and scholarships to help offset the costs of maintaining athletic facilities and general operating expenses associated with sport sponsorships.
Athletic fundraising and sponsorships are an integral part of the support needed to maintain high quality and competitive sport programs not only in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) but at the national level.
There are four fundraising initiatives currently supporting the athletic department:

- Tiger Athletic Scholarship Fund
- The Tiger Athletic Scholarship Fund (TASF) was developed to help support the educational aspirations of our student athletes. MCC is able to help our DI student athletes with all financial needs associated with attending our campus including tuition, fees, room & board, books, travel and associated course fees. We can provide our DII student athletes financial support with tuition, fees, books and associated course fees. In accordance with NJCAA rules regarding the number of scholarships/grants in aid that are allowed for each of our sports, we are not a fully funded athletic scholarship program.
- Therefore, we look for continued support from our friends of the program to continue our quality development by supporting us through scholarship donations. Contributions to the TASF go directly through the MCC Foundation and get credited back to our program for disbursement to our student athletes. You and your family or business can make general donations, specific donations per designated sport, or work with our MCC Foundation to set up a yearly scholarship fund under your name or to set up an endowed scholarship.
If you are interested in contributing to the TASF, please contact Kathleen Brown at 641-844-5670 for to discuss your interest and our needs.
