HOW FUNDRAISING SUPPORTS MP&MS
TO LIVE - TO GROW - TO THRIVE
Annual Fund (October)
The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of fundraising at MP&MS and relies on the generosity of current parents, alumni, trustees, employees, grandparents, and friends. Along with tuition, the Annual Fund supports the day-to-day operations of the school. The addition of Annual Fund dollars also helps keep tuition as affordable as possible by meaningfully contributing to the operating budget. Annual Fund dollars make it possible for us to attract and retain the best faculty, provide professional development opportunities for our staff, fund programs in art, athletics, and music, and purchase classroom materials, information technology, and other equipment. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation! We gratefully accept gifts of all amounts. Our leadership giving begins at $7,500.
Capital Campaign (All Year)
A capital campaign is an intensive fundraising effort designed to meet the long-term needs of an organization. These needs can include the construction of new buildings, renovation of existing buildings, acquisition of equipment, and additions to endowment. Capital projects address the fact that exceptional teaching must take place with excellent tools, including classrooms that accommodate the latest technology as well as enough space to climb, play, learn, and gather outdoors. Examples of capital projects in recent years include the playground remodel, new science lab, upgraded restroom facilities, improved ADA accessibility, outdoor amphitheater, and updated garden classroom.
Annual Auction & Gala (Nashville Nights, April 27, 2019, Mill Valley)
The annual auction, hosted by the MP&MS Parents Association, is the school’s premier fundraising event and provides a valuable contribution to both the school’s annual operating budget and Fund A Need campaign. Each year, the MP&MS community comes together to contribute the time, money, and resources necessary to produce this amazing fundraiser. This event is always an impressive and memorable night out. Support and participation from our community for the auction, as well as sponsorships and underwriting, help to make this event a success.
