WAYS TO SUPPORT MCS
Every donation, no matter how small, can make a great impact in the lives of our students! Your support of the Annual Fund helps cover day to day expenses and help make tuition affordable to families seeking out a Christian education for their children. Perhaps you would consider sponsoring just one child, in full or in part, giving them the gift of an education at MCS. Every bit helps! For more information CONTACT US.
Every day at MCS, we are blessed by the facilities that our supporters have made possible. In the past few years, we have been able to update our lighting with more efficient LED lighting, upgrade the electrical supply to our server room for reliability, and replace the boiler and heat delivery system, and replace the roof. We are currently raising funds to replace original windows throughout the school to new energy efficient ones, carpeting some of the hallways and remodeling some of the classrooms. If you would like to learn more about these initiatives, please CONTACT US.
MUSKEGON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FOUNDATION (MCSEF)
The Muskegon Christian School Education Foundation, Inc. was established as a separate 501c(3) with the purpose of providing capital independent of tuition. Interest from the investments of this organization is used to offset the difference between the tuition charged to families and the actual cost of education. With a balance of over $1.4 million, that really adds up! We are able to receive gifts in various forms including property, securities, life insurance, retirement assets and will bequests. By giving to the MCSEF, you give immediate assistance to our students today while providing financial stability for our future. That is a wonderful legacy!
MUSKEGON CHRISTIAN SCHOOL TECHNOLOGY ENDOWMENT (MCSTE)
Even if we can’t know exactly what technologies will develop, we know that they will! In 2013, we established the MCS Technology Endowment Fund at the Muskegon Community Foundation to help plan for future technological challenges. Funds from this Endowment will be used in the future for upgrading computers, systems and software.
Estate planning and deferred giving plans can be made free of charge with the assistance of the Barnabas Foundation. For over 30 years, Barnabas Foundation has helped Christians like you meet their family financial needs while supporting the causes that are close to their heart. Their confidential estate planning expertise is available to you at no charge – thanks to their 200 Christian member organizations. For more information or to arrange an appointment, please contact Barnabas Foundation at 616-956-1232 or click here to visit the Barnabas website.

SHOP AT OUR Retail Fundraising Partner STORES
Retail fundraising is an innovative way for schools to raise funds for programs and tuition assistance.
Both located in Muskegon, DIBS! On Resale (1279 East Apple Avenue) and B2 Outlet Store (1638 Apple Avenue) exist for this purpose. DIBS! sells gently-used donated clothing, home goods, and furniture while B2 retails new name-brand clothing, shoes and home goods acquired from excess inventory from big box stores. Both stores offer deep discounts to customers, employ locals, and have been warmly embraced by the Muskegon community.
The DIBS! and B2 Outlet Store models complement each other. The income from DIBS! is a result of heavy volunteer support, product donations, and thrift-shoppers. B2 thrives on minimal volunteers and bargain shoppers. Both offer local consumers a wide array of product choices and price points.
