Student Funds Account

What is a “STUDENT ACCOUNT?”
Student Accounts are funds that Mira Costa MUN students have earned by participating in specific fundraising activities throughout the year while in the Model UN Program. An accounting of these funds is maintained by the Booster Club Treasurer and Finance Chair.

How does a student add to the account?
Money can be earned from specific fundraisers like the Hometown Fair and poinsettia sales. For example, if a student works a shift at the fair, he/she will get a “share” or a cut of the proceeds. If a parent works as well, then the student will get a total of two shares. For poinsettia sales, usually about $6-7 per plant goes to the account, although this amount varies year to year based on the total of plants sold, and the price we get from the grower.

Where do I spend the funds?
Student Account funds can be used towards the following:
  • Travel Conferences
  • End of Year Banquet tickets for student, family or friends

​How can I find out how much money my student has accrued?
You can get the balance in your student's account at any time by emailing finance@mchsmun.org.

How can funds be used to pay for conference fees and banquet tickets?
Funds are automatically deducted from all travel conference invoices after the deposit has been paid.

What about unused funds?
  • Unused funds in the student account stay in each student’s MCHS MUN Student Account for the entire time they are in the MCHS MUN program. Funds are carried over to the following year if unused during the current year. Funds will remain in the account until the student graduates or leaves the program.
  • ​Any funds left remaining in the account when a student graduates or leaves the program will be transferred to the MCHS MUN General Fund.  Funds may not be withdrawn for cash at any time or transferred to siblings or other students in the program.
 
Can donations go towards a student account?
If in the course of selling poinsettias a donation is made in lieu of purchasing plants, the money goes to the MCHS MUN General Fund. Donations may not go into a student’s individual MCHS MUN Student Account.

Note: Any donations made outside of these fundraisers (at any time of year), the money goes to the MCHS MUN General Fund.  At no time may individual donations be designated to a student’s individual MCHS MUN Student Account.
