We invite alumni, parents, and friends to help us make Mt. Mansfield Ski Club (MMSC) an even stronger program and more accessible to a wide range of exceptional skiers. MMSC relies on donations and support to help our programs grow and continue to offer scholarships and grants to our athletes into the future.
Mt. Mansfield Educational Foundation, Inc. (MMSEFI)
The mission of the foundation is to support the athletes and programs of MMSC, in an effort to control participation costs and general expenses. The primary function of this nonprofit foundation is fundraising activities and solicitations.
The MMSEFI helps MMSC to:
• Finance the present programs and scholarships
• Provide more young skiers with proper equipment, adequate coaching, training camps, and other incidentals such as travel expenditure assistance
• Increase interest in competitive skiing
The MMSEF has several different funds to support various awards, scholarships and grants, which are awarded annually. Some of the awards have a monetary value and are funded by private donations, while others are not. However, they all recognize athletes with outstanding qualities.
Need-based scholarships are awarded at the end of October and applications must be requested and returned by October 1 of that year for consideration. The funding for these scholarships comes from proceeds of the MMSC Golf Tournament and private foundations: The Paul Biedermann Fund and The Charles Black Fund.
If you are interested in donating to the MMSEF General Fund or to any other specific funds please contact Igor Vanovac at the Mt.Mansfield Ski Club. He can be reached at (802) 253-7704 ext. 22.
