Give to MTC
The cost to MTC of educating a child is not fully covered by his or her tuition. Fortunately we have a generous school community that makes up that difference through fundraising and development. For information on how you can help finance our future, contact Ms. Christine Pagan, Principal, via email or by calling 610-265-2323. You may also contribute to the MTC Fund, purchase a wish list item, or donate in memoriam securely online:
Computer software, gym equipment, playground equipment, classroom materials… There is never a lack of need for funding, and when that fundraising is absolutely free and nearly effortless, HASA is all over it! The following programs are managed by HASA for MTC. Volunteers are always needed to assist in these projects, so please contact a HASA member or visit the HASA page to sign up!

The many ways to give:
There are a number of ways to show your support of Mother Teresa Regional Catholic School, all of which are an important part of the Development program. Annual Giving provides the financial support necessary to enhance academic programs, provide additional technical and educational materials to our teachers, maintain tuition, provide financial aid for deserving students, and secure the growth and intellectual development of Mother Teresa Regional Catholic School.
A cash contribution may seem to be the easiest and is usually the first method that comes to mind, but it is not always the most advantageous to the donor. Through careful planning you can identify the method which best fits your situation, while maximizing the impact of your gift to Mother Teresa RCS. Please feel free to contact Patsy Swope at 610-265-2323 for more information on giving opportunities. You should also check with your attorney, accountant, or other tax adviser for the advantages or possible drawbacks of making a planned gift, based upon your particular circumstances.
