A Co-op education is possible only when the entire Co-op community is involved. Our school relies on parents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends to provide financial support over and above tuition to cover the additional expenses of this singular education.
There are many ways to support the Co-op:
The Co-op Fund offers you a way to support our unique educational program and bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Co-op education. Your tax-deductible donations go directly to our annual operating budget and also help to fund our tuition assistance program. As we launch the campaign each fall, we ask each member of our Co-op community to participate in the Co-op Fund at a meaningful level. With a goal of 100% participation from the Board of Trustees, parents, and employees, the support we get from these “internal” constituents gives foundations and other funding sources an indication of our institutional strength.
There are many convenient ways to give:
Or send a check, payable to MCS, to Montclair Cooperative School, 65 Chestnut St., Montclair, NJ 07042.
Our annual Benefit Auction is a celebration of the value and uniqueness of the Co-op’s nurturing and vibrant educational program. The money raised from this event goes to the most pressing needs of the Co-op. This year’s event will be held at the Montclair Art Museum and will feature food, drinks, music and an auction with a live auctioneer. For more information or to buy tickets, follow this link.
Gifts that are part of an overall financial plan and benefit you as well as MCS are planned gifts. They are deliberate strategies designed to meet your specific goals and often include estate planning. Planned gifts can enable you to make a larger gift than you might have thought possible while providing financial benefit to you.
