We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

An Investment in Education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world.

Catholic Schools are communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service which encompass several concepts that are the heart of Manhattan Catholic School. We focus on helping children grow in faith, knowledge and service and with your generous gift we can continue to provide quality education to many children by keeping it affordable for all families. Please help the children of Manhattan Catholic School by providing a gift to this year's Annual Fund Drive.

These funds will ensure:

  • Affordable Catholic education for all children
  • Academic resources for our students
  • Tuition assistance for our students who otherwise could not afford a Catholic education
  • Competitive teacher's salaries
  • Resources for the maintenance of our facility

Hello, we are the Ekart family. We have two grade schoolers and one preschooler attending Manhattan Catholic Schools. We are proud to have our children be the fourth generation of our family to attend MCS. As parents we believe in giving our children a strong academic and faith foundation. This is why we choose to send our children to MCS. We would like to encourage you to consider furthering the legacy of catholic education to Manhattan children.

Manhattan Catholic Schools focuses on the whole child- mind, body, and spirit. We have seen this development in our own children with their participation and interest in the Mass, leadership in the classroom and friendships formed. It is exciting for us to see our children creating their own MCS memories.

Manhattan Catholic Schools is not only an excellent institution of education but has become a second family for our children. The staff are role models of faith and share many of the same Catholic values that we find important. As Mother Theresa once said "I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things." Together as a community at MCS we are helping to shape tomorrows leaders.

The Annual Fund Drive directly impacts and enhances the quality of education for children like ours. There is no better investment than money spent on a child's Catholic education. Your contribution to Manhattan Catholic Schools is more than a gift, it's life changing!

- Joe and Emily Ekart

My name is Will Ekart and I am a third grader attending Manhattan Catholic Schools. My MCS teachers have shown me the importance of being a good leader and stepping up to be involved. From the time I was a kindergartener when I helped for the first time at Mass or when I was a second grader going through first communion, I have always felt excited and well prepared to participate. I enjoy helping others and look forward to the many opportunities each year to do this with my school. One of my favorite memories of helping is when my family and I were raking leaves with other families to get the school ready for Buttons and Bows. MCS has shown me that giving and helping can be fun and is very rewarding not only for the person receiving but for me as well. I hope that you will help MCS students and future students continue to enjoy the values of a Catholic education by donating to the Annual Fund Drive.
