"We are on our fifth adviser at Eastpointe High School [having been a partner with AdviseMI for several years]. I have a hard time seeing a time when our school culture does not have an MCAN adviser at the school. The $15,000 that our school district provides for the adviser is a drop in the bucket and well worth the investment for meeting our students' needs."
Funding and Administration
MCAN has secured investment commitment from these leading colleges and other funding partners to sustain the program over multiple years. By braiding together relatively small amounts of funding from multiple sources, the program does not cause a financial strain on any one organization. Successful applicant high schools, a local philanthropic partner, or other entity must provide a cash match for each adviser. MCAN administers the program by employing and training the advisers, as well as managing all program, grant, and AmeriCorps requirements.
