Why are donations needed in order to pay for building construction?
For a New Mexico public charter school, some building expenses are not provided through public funds. These include pre-construction costs such as architect’s fees, purchase of land, etc. In addition, some expenses for equipping the school will also need to be provided.
How much of the money donated will go toward the permanent building?
The Friends of Mosaic Academy board members all serve on a volunteer basis. Start-up and operating expenses have been minimal. These expenses have been met through individual contributions and donated services. The great majority of funds raised will go directly to building costs.
