Member Assistance Fund​

The MASB Member Assistance Fund helps defray costs of districts experiencing financial hardship or that see costs as a deterrent to accessing MASB services or events. The school board must apply for the 50% discount off a MASB service or workshop through board action1 (up to $1,500), but individual board members can apply separately for 50% off member training (up to $250 for an individual). Funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Board action must include either a copy of the minutes noting the decision or a signed letter from the district superintendent.

Process for Applying

  • Complete the online application within 45 days prior to utilization
  • Applications will be reviewed by the MASB Management Team as well as the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors
  • Approval will be provided within two (2) weeks of receipt of application
