Friends of MCS

There are many avenues for support and contributions at Manhattan Christian.  The following are some ways to donate to the activities and general fund of the school:

Twice Treasured Thrift Store 
Fall Annual Campaign
Donate Online
Manhattan Christian School Foundation

In addition, the Board has organized a fundraising committee to help coordinate various fundraising efforts.  Friends of MCS (Friends) is the booster fundraising branch of Manhattan Christian. Each year, Friends is asked to raise funds for the school in order to help bridge the gap between tuition receipts and actual operating costs. In general, anyone who helps in any way toward these fundraising goals is part of Friends of MCS.  Friends is asked to raise a total of $210,000 per year. This amount is broken down into three broad categories:  General Fund:$130,000   Tuition Assistance:$ 20,000   Athletics:$ 60,000

Fundraising is accomplished through the following current list of activities.

Booster Plaque Program - (Booster, Athletic Ad Boosters, Fine Arts Boosters) 
Cattle Fund Committee 
Fall Harvest Festival 
Spring Dutch Supper
TulipMania Auction 
Scrip Program 
Sporting Event Concessions
3 on 3 tournament 
Dutch Dash spring run (in conjunction with Amsterdam School)
Box Tops for Education

The “Athletics” amount of the total is covered by athletic activities such as the 3 on 3 tournament, concessions, and the athletic portion of the Booster plaque program. The remaining fundraisers make up the support for the General Fund and Tuition assistance.

Parents with students enrolled at MCS are asked to contribute time toward the fundraising efforts. Each family is asked to sign up for jobs at the various fundraising events. Each job has been assigned a “point” value  called Family Service Opportunities (FSO) and families are asked to sign up for five FSO points. ANYONE can sign up to work and ANY  family or individual can sign up for more than five points!  Please call Yvonne Kimm with questions concerning your FSO hours:  (406) 282-7683
