We just received a $500,000 two-year grant from one of our funding partners. It is a response to our $335,000 request earlier this year. Why did they give us 49% more?
Because, after due diligence, they believe MCA is making measurable progress and has significant promise. Accordingly, they encouraged us by providing funding to improve stability and stimulate growth. The grant, the largest in our history, will fund raising the average faculty salary by $8,500 over two years and existing budget expenses almost equally.
With this and other gifts in place, there is $485,000 remaining to fund this year. Here are some points for you to consider while you review MCA:
- 91+% of MCA scored above mastery in reading and math on standardized tests
- New Instructional Leadership Team, flatter structure
- Empowering teachers to lead
- Developing future leaders
- Age appropriate Christian formation
Every year, tuitions collected from families with challenged financial realities fall short of funding MCA’s dedicated faculty, Christ-centered program, and loving community. You, devoted supporters, have made it possible to price tuitions at 63% of their cost and include additional $375,000 financial assistance in the budget.
I ask that you consider the example of our funding partner who responded with far more than we requested. Our prayer is that you, too, will discover that MCA is more worthy of your financial support than ever.
We invite you, too, to see our progress and understand our promise. Please call me anytime on my cell, 203-912-7564, to set up a visit for you and your friends.
With prayers that God bless you and thanksgiving for your devotion to MCA,
