Make a Difference Fund

Monticello's Make a Difference Fund


The Make a Difference Fund is for students who are in financial need. This fund is available for families to help support the academic needs of their student. Families in need of financial assistance for academic support should call their school counselor to request help. The school counselor will then contact Mr. Joe Weaver who is the head of the Make a Difference Committee. All requests will go to the committee who will then decide if the request will be funded and if so, by how much.

Examples of requests that have been funded in the past include:

  • School supplies
  • Supplies for teachers who are working with students who are in need.
  • Fees for courses: Photography, Ceramics, Art, CATEC, Culinary Arts, Dresses for Choir
  • Field trip fees
  • College Applications & testing
  • Exam fees: CNA certification
  • Books for Dual Enrollment classes

Through the "Make a Difference Fund", many students needs have been met. This past year alone the fund has donated over $ 2,000.00 towards helping students and their families.

To make a contribution, please send your check to the Monticello Bookkeeper made payable to Monticello High School. Please also note that it is for the MAD Fund.
