Magnolia Gulf Coast Beta Club is only able to serve the homeschool students in 4th to 12th grades along the MS Gulf Coast through the generous support of local sponsors and supporters.  In order to keep our club fees low for the families, we hold fundraisers and rely on individuals and businesses in our community to help cover the additional cost of the activities.  These donations give our student members the opportunity to thrive within a positive team environment and to compete in team and individual academic competitions at the state, regional and national levels.  MGC Beta members learn and practice leadership skills through service.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
