The MMC Foundation was created in 1993 by the MMC Board of Education as an independent corporation and has 501c3 non-profit status. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities beyond traditional school financing. Through annual teacher grants and by the development of an endowment, which provides scholarships to MMC graduates, we assist them in funding their post-high school education. Both teacher grants and scholarships are made possible by generous donors. In 2016, each MMC grant applicant received $700 scholarship funds.
The RU Foundation was formed in 1999 by a group of people including alumni, parents, RU Board members, RU Administration and area residents interested in helping Remsen Union students as they graduate and move on to higher education. The RU Foundation is a non-profit organization with its own by-laws and is not under the financial control of the school budget or board. Funds are provided by generous private donations and yearly fund-raisers. The Foundation also administers several additional family scholarships including the Mueller Family Scholarship and the Perry Family Scholarship. In 2016, each RU grant applicant received $400.00 scholarship funds.
With the Whole Grade Sharing Agreement and the beginning of MMCRU, the MMC Foundation will serve all students and staff of MMCRU with scholarships and teacher grants. The RU Foundation will continue to support RU student scholarships as well as assisting the MMCRU Foundation.
