Celebrating MBCI Benefit Dinner 2023

Thursday, May 4th, 2023

  • 6:00 pm  Welcome Reception & Student Expo
  • 7:00 pm  Dinner, Entertainment, Raffles, A Showcase of Student Work

A partial tax receipt will be issued for all donations.

Join us and help make Christ centered education accesible to everyone.

All funds raised at this event support the MBCI Bursary Fund, helping to remove financial obstacles for families who might otherwise not be able to be part of our MBCI community.

When you give to bursaries through the MBCI Benefit Dinner, your gift is one of planting seeds. Some of the fruit of that planting is apparent right now, as your gift supports a student in learning and growing at MBCI. Your gift is also amplified for many years to come as students take with them all they have learned - and all of who they have become – and move out into the world.

Join us on May 4th for a first-hand glimpse into how MBCI equips students to learn, love, and engage with the world around them.
