Annual Fund Giving
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 are grateful for all donations, regardless of size. Our leadership giving begins at $7,500.
Gifts of cash, typically payable by check or credit card, or gifts of stock are tax-deductible and provide immediate funds to the school. Click below for easy online giving.
Annual Fund Facts: Every independent school relies on two revenue streams each year: tuition dollars and philanthropic donations.
- Donations to the Annual Fund are an essential part of our operating budget.
- Donations are also tax deductible, so families can enjoy that benefit when you make your gift.

A low student to teacher ratio so that every student is known and nurtured
Funding for our art, music, drama, and athletic programs
A robust tuition assistance program that allows us to open our doors to wonderful families every year.
