We are organized businesses working together for charitable, education, and/or scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or corresponding section of any future federal tax code. More specifically the purpose of the corporation is to provide a place where anyone in need is equipped for life and employment through job skill training and other skills and to provide opportunities for local business people to share themselves and their knowledge with those in need.
The Mosaic Center has a broad base of financial support including foundation and corporate; annual donations from individuals, annual fundraisers; and congregational support. There are no enrollment fees from students and we do not receive any government funding. Charitable contributions allow us to provide all the services that students receive. Our diverse funding sources provide a strong sustaining base of support.
In addition, The Mosaic Center benefits from significant in-kind contributions. Volunteers are central to our mission and keep costs low. Volunteers serve as teachers, tutors, childcare workers, mentors and fundraisers. We also have a volunteer IT team that keeps our technology up to date and running smoothly. All of this helps develop community.
Another significant in-kind donation is The Mosaic Center does not own and does not plan to own facilities at this time. Partnering with churches to utilize their space at times when there is less activity, works well and makes financial sense.
