Background

The Mansergh-Stussey Fund was established in 2011, 

recognizing the 50th wedding anniversary of Gerald and Nancy Stuessy Mansergh. It is intended for MPCC institutions from which Mansergh-Stuessy descendants have received a Bachelor's degree. 

We appreciate and support these colleges as a family.


Since the first grants in 2012, over $45,000 has been awarded to fund 16 cutting-edge ideas in Minnesota liberal arts college environments.
