Our Goals include supporting the local community, fostering and encouragement of higher degree of

skill and efficiency, the commitment to providing the public with a professional highly trained staff, the

pursuit of safety, the cultivation of friendship among its members, the elevation and improvement of

the moral, intellectual, social, and economic conditions of its members. MFA is funded through

membership dues and traditional fundraising throughout the community. The Association receives no

funding from the City of Monticello. MFA charitable giving to local organizations include DHS Angel tree

Shop with a COP, The CALL, and MDA’s Fill the Boot. MFA offers temporary relocation assistance to
