MT. CARMEL SCHOOL is always on the move, trying to improve the quality of our campus, our facilities, and our education programs. Your financial assistance is very much appreciated!

HAVE YOU received your June letter yet? If not, you’ll want to read it here. God is working among our students! We bless His name! This is why we exist. Please prayerfully consider what the Lord would have you do to help this ministry move forward. We count on your prayers, and we are in need of your financial support. Read the June letter to learn about some exciting upgrades taking place on our campus. You may want to print the letter and mail in the reply card with your check. Or you may want to give online. Either option is fine. If you give online (below), be sure to indicate in the Comments area how you want your donation to be used (General Fund, Staff Housing, or Appalachian Education Endowment). Thank you!
AS IN ANY growing organization, unplanned needs pop up when we least expect them.
It happens in your household too. Water pipes burst. The refrigerator quits working. The car breaks down. The project runs over budget. Didn’t plan on that, did we?
Thank you for giving us the freedom to use your gift where it is most needed. Your generosity helps us meet these crises.
MRS. AGNES PEARL CREED NEIHOF served at Mt. Carmel for 54 years, from 1959 to 2003. A woman of grace and dignity, her presence in a room inspired us to a higher standard. Mrs. Neihof respected others and received respect. She was efficient as a homemaker, hostess, dorm parent, teacher, principal, and office worker.
In the early 1960s, grades 1-3 were held in the basement where Dr. and Mrs. Paulo lived, the house that he built. Some maintenance work has been done on the Paulo house over the years, but it has not had a serious renovation. It is time to do that now. Our current elementary principal, Peggy Whisman, and her daughter are currently living in the house. We have done a complete makeover in the kitchen, replaced the roof, and installed new windows on the main floor.
In memory of Mrs. Agnes Neihof, we would like to raise $25,000 to finish renovating the house for Ms. Whisman. This would include new siding, facia, gutters, new central heat and air, making a master bedroom with a new and larger bathroom, replacing the basement windows, and finishing the basement with a laundry area, family area, two small bedrooms, and a bathroom. Praise the Lord that $5,000 has already been pledged for the exterior portion.
The Paulo family has agreed that it would be good to honor Mrs. Neihof by remodeling the house and adding her name to it. The house would be the Paulo / Agnes Neihof Memorial Cottage. We think it is appropriate to do this remodel for the current elementary principal since the home has a history of service to the elementary school.
MOST OF OUR local students and some of our international students receive some form of financial assistance.
This may be in the form of work or funded scholarships, but this year about $85,000 is unfunded.
If you or your church are interested in personally sponsoring a student, there are eight students who need full sponsorship. With $3,200 you can fully sponsor a child with tuition, transportation, and food.
THE FACULTY AND STAFF at Mt. Carmel serve on a volunteer basis and are responsible for raising their own support.
They are provided with housing and can get their meals in the dining hall. But as you know, there are many other expenses involved in managing a household: insurance, personal items, clothing, medications, gasoline, and more.
WHAT IS AN endowment fund? It is an investment fund established by an organization that makes consistent withdrawals from the interest of invested capital. The interest from endowed funds is generally utilized for specific needs or to further a company’s operating process.
Giving to an endowment fund will help to ensure Mt. Carmel School is a viable ministry in the future.
Interest earned from general endowment funds will assist the school with general operating expenses.
Interest earned from endowed scholarships will go to assist a financially needy student with tuition assistance. If one wishes to name a scholarship, it must be a minimum gift of $2,500.
ENDOWED PERSONNEL SUPPORT
Interest earned from endowed personnel support will provide Mt. Carmel School employees with much needed financial assistance. These funds will be appropriated on an as-needed basis.
For more information about supporting Mt. Carmel through Endowment Funds, please contact our Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at +1.606.666.5008.
AT MT. CARMEL SCHOOL, THE NOON MEAL (lunch) is the main meal of the day. All of our students (including day students) and most of the faculty and staff eat lunch in the dining hall on school days.
The approximate cost to provide this lunch meal is $3.00 per student per day. Would you like to provide lunch for a student for a week? It would be a great help and costs only $15.00!
ARE YOU A sports enthusiast? Have you wished Mt. Carmel had a bigger, better sports program? Well, here’s your opportunity to help make it happen.
We have an option for businesses who would be willing to invest $500 in our sports program in exchange for public advertising space in our gym. For details, please contact us.
We also have an option for individuals who would sponsor an athlete for the school year. A gift of $175 will cover the costs of a uniform, league fees, and a share of transportation expenses for one student.
PARENTS ENTRUST US with their children to keep them safe. That’s a responsibility we take seriously. And it includes safe, reliable transportation for our students.
Mt. Carmel School is in need of a 15-passenger van. Your gift toward this and other needed vehicles would help produce a much-needed upgrade to our vehicle fleet. You may give any amount of your choosing. You may also consider donating your used vehicle. We can use trucks, cars, minivans, and especially large capacity passenger vehicles (vans, small buses). Contact us for more information.
DO YOU KNOW how much “stuff” a teacher needs? Let’s see.
There’s paper (all sorts), pencils, pens, markers, bulletin boards, flash cards, notebooks, glue/paste, posters, stapler, paper clips, erasers, reference books, software, and learning aids. And bulletins boards! As you know, the cost of these items can add up fast. Your gift of $250/year would go a long way in providing new and improved teaching materials for a teacher. (Did we mention bulletin boards?)
You’ve got options!
