Financial contributions beyond tuition make a meaningful difference for our students, faculty and staff. There are several ways for you to contribute:
Shoes with Heart
The Shoes with Heart Program is an incredible way to raise funds for our organization as well as helping make the earth a greener place. Donate your old shoes and clothes, and these items will then get renewed and recycled.
Donate to the General Fund
The General Fund is vital in maintaining and improving educational excellence at MECA so each child is ensured a bright future. All tax-deductible gifts to the General Fund directly impact every student by supporting Daycare, Preschool, and K-6 programs throughout the year. As independent Christian school, MECA operates without financial support from government entities.
F.U.N Run / Health Fair (Fitness Uniting Neighborhoods)
This one-day event is geared to promote family involvement in physical activity and to acquaint the community with health and wellness resources. For the F.U.N. Run students find sponsors and then participate in various races and activities. This event gives families the opportunity to come together and experience the great outdoors while supporting the growth of our organization and programs.
Family Night Out
Come dine out with us on specific dates and that organization will donate a percentage of your bill back to MECA. Sponsor organizations like Rubio’s, Applebees, and Panda Express are examples of our Family Night Out events.
Sponsor full or partial tuition for a family that needs financial support. These sponsorships are reserved for families with multiple children in the program or exhibit serious financial need and a commitment to Mt. Erie through volunteer work.
