Annual Fundraising Campaign
2016 marks the 51st year that 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. And for the last 50 years, 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 800 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 $60,000 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.
