#GivingTuesday 2016 Was a Success!

Giving TuesdayThanks to the generosity of the Manhattan Country School community, we exceeded our #GivingTuesday goal of raising $50,000.

We received close to $75,000 in #GivingTuesday online contributions and checks from those who participated by mail are still coming in. This is more than twice the amount we received in 2015. We more than doubled the number of donors—from 145 to 320–as well.

To date, 48 percent of current families have given to The MCS Fund. We are well on our way to reaching our goal of 100-percent participation by families.

Thank you to everyone who joined the #GivingTuesday movement and made a contribution!

#GivingTuesday not only garnered generous gifts, the campaign also compelled many members of our community to send us messages of gratitude. The following excerpt is just one example:

"I made a donation this morning! So happy MCS is moving forward. As my kids get older I see the effects of MCS all the time.”

We are so grateful to have such a caring community of families, alumni, faculty, staff, trustees and friends.
