#GivingTuesday is an international, digitally-based movement to create a day of support and philanthropy at the beginning of the holiday season. Giving Tuesday 2018 will take place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Here are a few need-to-know facts for parents about your support this Giving Tuesday:
- A gift to the MCS Fund is an unrestricted gift that supports annual operating expenses (like teacher salaries and school supplies). Our goal for parents is 100% participation. A gift in any amount is valued and needed.
- We need to sustain and grow the MCS Fund each year as annual operating expenses increase due to costs associated with expanding enrollment and staff.
- A gift to the Capital Campaign is used to support expenses related to our strategic growth plan, including building construction and expansion of the school’s academic program on West 85thStreet and at the MCS Farm.
- Any gift to MCS (including the MCS Fund or the Capital Campaign) supports Expanding Purpose: The Campaign for the Future of Manhattan Country School and the school’s steadfast commitment to diversity, equity and making a high-quality progressive education accessible to the broadest range of students.
