Charter schools, like all public schools in New Jersey, receive funds from the State of New Jersey, based on the student population. The formula currently being used by the state to fund charter schools does not cover all of our expenses. Through grants, fundraising efforts and donations, we are able to fill in the gaps so that we can build and expand vital programs for our students and alumni. Your support will help us continue to make an incredible difference in the lives of our scholars. One of the simplest ways to support MPTCS is with a financial contribution to the MPTCS Foundation, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization established to provide financial resources for programs that help MPTCS students and alumni achieve educational excellence. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by the law.
We are currently allocating donations to our "Give the Gift of Education" fund, which will benefit the MPTCS Foundation Scholarship Fund. This fund provides scholarships for MPTCHS' graduating seniors moving on to college and other post-secondary accredited programs. Remember no donation is too small or too great!
