Since its humble beginnings in the basement of Our Lady of Sorrows Parish, Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School (MTCES) has had school parents as its backbone. Parents have always understood and embraced the value of the MTCES experience—an experience that contributes to the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth of its students through its commitment to academic excellence, Christian values, and the liberal arts. It is the parents who, through countless volunteer hours and financial contributions, have made MTCES what it is today.

In May 2005, MTCES hired a full time Development Director to work closely with the Board of Trustees and Development and Finance Committees in planning and implementing a multi-faceted advancement program for the school’s capital, operating, and programming needs. Through individual and corporate gift solicitation and a variety of fundraisers, Advancement staff is committed to helping MTCES keep tuition increases to a minimum while providing students with a safe learning environment.

Today, the MTCES Advancement staff continues to work closely with a volunteer Marketing & Advancement Committee to establish long range strategic plans, expand the school’s donor base, manage key donor and annual giving programs, and achieve budgetary goals.

If you are interested in serving on this Committee, or know someone you’d like to recommend for participation, contact Marlena Hoendorf, Director of Marketing & Advancement at (513) 779-6585 or mhoendorf [at] mtces [dot] org. We are seeking a variety of talents and skills: creativity, networking, solicitation, donor cultivation, strategic planning and more.
