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.
If you are interested in supporting Dr. Karen Thomas' Birthday Fundraising Campagin, benefitting a partnership between MPTCS Culinary Department and the Wells International Foundation to create a culinary exchange for students @ MPTCS High School of Culinary Arts and Academie of Culinary Art for the Creole World in France, please indicate that when making your donation. No donation is too small or too great and we are extremely grateful for your willigness to help our students.
Want to support our MPTCS Foundation Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for our graduating seniors moving on to college and other post-secondary accredited programs, please indicate that when giving. Remember no donation is too small or too great!
