How we use your donations
Here is a snapshot of our finances. Although MSEP has occasionally received grants from foundations over the years, the project relies on community donors for core support. If you would like to see a complete financial statement showing how funds are raised and spent, please contact us. We are happy to share this information.
Our Finances in 2018
2018 marked the third and final year of a grant received from the Pathy Family Foundation in 2016. Thus the pie chart for revenues indicates that this grant provided $15,000 of our revenue last year. Since it has now ended, funds raised by the project’s activities, charitable donations and donations from community organizations have become increasingly important. We are extremely grateful for the response of our community to our fall appeal as reflected in the increase in charitable donations this year. The expenditures chart shows how we used our funds in 2018. $12,500 was given to our six partner schools as MSEP’s annual donation. In addition, a special donation once again enabled us to make a significant targeted contribution to one school. Volunteer support accounted for $17,631 or 30% of our expenses. As you can see, because Project Committee members are all volunteers, we spend little on ourselves! If you have any questions or would like further information about our project finances, please contact us. We are proud of our management and happy to respond.
Note: In 2016, project revenues included a substantial grant of $45,000 from the Pathy Family Foundation to be used over a three year period (2016-2018). Our pie chart for revenue this year shows the last installment of that grant.
This year MSEP contributions to schools included $20,000 in targeted funding for schools with special needs.
