Annual Fundraising Campaign
For over 50 years Manhasset students have turned to a local charity for
financial assistance to help them achieve the goal of a college education:
The Manhasset Student Aid Association. Local and individual donors have
contributed most the funds that we distribute to the students.
The MSAA assists approximately 25 students a year with the cost of
college education. Since our inception more than 900 students have received
our financial aid; based on documentation of need without consideration of
race, gender or creed.
The Manhasset families who receive our financial support know how
essential it is. One student recently wrote about the rigorous academic
program she was pursuing with our help and stated, “I don’t know if
I would have made it this far or even dream bigger if not for your generous
grant to me. What you are doing is changing lives and giving hope to the
hopeless. I am truly blessed ...”
Our annual campaign takes place every spring. It consists of letters and
email messages requesting donations. The funds we raise help us determine
the level of funding that we can offer for the academic year and later
years. Many of our students need help every year of college, but they must
re-apply on an annual basis.
The MSAA is administered by a Board of unpaid volunteers. Our costs are
very low and some are absorbed by the Board members. Virtually your entire
donation goes to the direct benefit of our students.
So, please be our partner again this year. Click the “Donate Now” button
and follow the simple instructions.
We hope to raise at least $50,000 in donations. Please consider the
enormous lift that you can provide to needy students.
Finally, we ask you to consider joining the MSAA Board. The burden is
light. We have only four brief meetings a year. It is truly satisfying to
play a role in the success of these young Americans. Just contact any Board
member from the list on this website to get more information.
