TO LIVE—Annual Fund (fall)
TO THRIVE–Fund For Financial Aid
Marin Primary & Middle School has made a permanent commitment to the financial aid program through the creation of the Fund for Financial Aid. As we work to prepare our students for success in school and in life, we know that we must model the socio-economic spectrum of diversity beyond our campus. In concert with the school’s mission and values, this fund will support our commitment to financial aid and the resulting benefits it provides in perpetuity. For a school such as ours that is still relatively young, this fund creates an extraordinary opportunity and represents an important step towards long term sustainability. Our commitment to a vibrantly diverse student body is at the center of this initiative. Establishing a restricted fund will mean greater access for more students with financial need now and into the future. To inquire about making a gift to the Fund for Financial Aid, click here.
TO GROW—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.
TO CONNECT—Annual Auction & Gala (Spring)
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. To get involved in this year's auction, click here.
