MCS Relief Fund

In light the recent world events and the potential for significant financial impact, Mariners Christian School has established a Financial Relief Fund purposed to provide financial support and assistance for purposes outlined below.

To establish this fund, MCS administration seeks donor and/or foundation contributions to support this endeavor. The school believes it is essential to establish this fund to protect the financial stability of the institution, community, and employees.

We're All In This Together

Help us provide financial resources to those in our community who have been effected the most by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Here are the areas this Relief Fund will support

  1. Employee Financial Relief Fund: Upon an identified need, contributed funds would be distributed by MCS to an employee whose family has been financially impacted and is at risk of financial hardship. This can include, but is not limited to, loss of wages or employment to spouse, increased health care expenses, or loss of wages to employee.
  2. Staffing Relief Fund: The provided contributions would serve as an added layer of financial provision should, due to financial hardship, the institution itself be required to decrease pay, furlough or lay off employees, or change employment hourly status. It is the goal of MCS to avoid any change to employment or wages of all employees during this time.
  3. Tuition Assistance: Contributions to this fund can also be designated toward tuition relief or forgiveness should MCS families be financially impacted and unable to pay tuition during this time.
  4. Compensation for Additional Job Responsibilities and Duties: Considering the additional responsibility and the required extra effort on behalf of the MCS staff to transition to and conduct remote learning, MCS desires to honor and support all staff for the additional required work. This is not feasible within the operational budget of the school yet is important in honoring and valuing our employees. This is essential for a healthy staff culture and for the well-being of our staff.
  5. Other purposes or allocations as deemed necessary and appropriate by school personnel.

Contributions toward this Financial Relief fund can be designated to any of the above or provided at the discretion of school administration.

Because we are dedicated to supporting members of our community experiencing unexpected need due to COVID-19 related issues, available funds within the budget have been specifically designated for emergency, short-term financial assistance. This aid is specific to financial impact occurring within the timeframe of COVID-19 shutdowns. Though funds are limited, if you truly find yourself financially impacted by COVID-19 and therefore unable to continue tuition payments, we will do whatever we can to support through financial aid or tuition payment extensions. We care deeply about our families and want to make sure we do what we can to address any issue that is within our ability. Please do not just cease tuition payments, but reach out to learn more about our financial assistance program through the COVID-19 crisis. We are all in this together and there is help available for those who have true need.  For more information, please contact Keven Kroehler.

Yes! To augment this fund and better serve and meet the needs of the MCS community, we seek donors with the capacity and heart to live out Acts 2 and contribute to the MCS Relief Fund. We are thankful for a generous MCS family that has already contributed to this fund and seek additional families who feel led to contribute. Contributions to this fund can be made here. Please contact Heather Harrison or Carla Colaianni with further questions.
