Welcome to Manheim Central Student Loan Fund Association

Welcome to Manheim Central School District Student Loan Fund Association (dba Manheim Central Student Loan Fund or MCSLF)

The Manheim Central Student Loan Fund, founded in November 1957 (approximately 67 years), is a non-profit community organization which provides low interest loans for Manheim Central High School graduates who would like to pursue further education.

To address the challenges facing Manheim Central School District graduates, the MCSLF increased the annual and maximum loans by 60% to $4,000 and $16,000, respectively, in 2020.

MCSLF annually distributes approximately $350,000 to Manheim Central High School students to further their education through college or vocational training. MCSLF currently has approximately $1.7 million in assets comprised entirely of student loans or cash restricted for use as student loans. MCSLF currently has approximately 215 active borrowers (greater than one entire “class” at Manheim Central). Since MCSLF’s inception in 1957, we have granted approximately $6.9 million in student loans to greater than 1000 Manheim Central High School graduates.

MCSLF is an all-volunteer, non-profit community service organization and is tax exempt pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are tax-deductible.

MCSLF is administered by an eleven member volunteer Board of Directors made up of local community leaders, current and former Manheim Central faculty and administrators all of whom have a passion to see Manheim Central students and graduates succeed in their careers and chosen fields of endeavors..
