MFP is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization. We depend on donations and grants to pay for the major costs of the program. Because we raise 3/4 of the cost for the students we do not provide any additional financial assistance. If you need financial assistance you will need to work that out with your parish or diocese. Many students in the program have done this.

Students are responsible for their own transportation and the current year cost.
