The foundation supports a variety of worthy projects and needs within the district. Over the course of time, we have solicited funds for the MCA Band, WKMCTV, the Silver Bowl, sports teams, academic scholarships, summer camp, and food programs for students. While our goals are a reflection of the many needs of MCA students and staff, you may choose to donate to one or more of them, or designate any worthy cause within the district to receive your donation.
Summer Camp for MCA Students
A donation was made to the Mount Carmel Area Education Foundation by the Bucknell University Catholic Campus Ministry. The funds expanded available slots for MCA students attending the Mother Maria Kaupas Center Camp this summer. The Kaupas Center in cooperation with Bucknell University, Mt. Carmel Area School District, and the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit provides STEAM(Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) learning activities for attending students. Working alongside Bucknell University students and staff gives campers a chance to share in an enhanced learning experience while benefiting the community through their work.
