Annual Giving benefits every student
Why We Give
“The more I get to know MMS – the staff and the students – the more I am assured that it is the right environment for my kids. The most important things I want for my children are to recognize the greatness that is within them, to love who they are and to understand what it means to receive by giving. MMS cultivates all of those things in them.”
“Mount Madonna School had a profound impact on my development and the trajectory of my life. Before attending Mount Madonna, I had to choose what parts of myself and my interests to share. At Mount Madonna I had the opportunity to develop in multiple areas and be accepted and celebrated for my strengths and challenges. I also had personalized engagement and attention from brilliant educators who cared deeply for me as a person and a learner.”
“We are grateful for the financial assistance our family receives. Participating in fundraisers is a way for us to give back.”
"Being a part of the MMS community is a two-way street: giving and receiving. We have received so much heartfelt support for our students here over the years; it is truly a priceless gift to them that will benefit them their whole lives. In a spirit of gratitude and full participation, I want to do my part to give back to all the many, many people - both paid and unpaid - who make the MMS magic possible."
Annual Giving is one way we show how much we appreciate and value the unique educational opportunities provided for students at MMS. The MMS board/trustees, employees, current families, grandparents, alumni and their families participate along with many friends of MMS. Our goals are two-fold:
- 100% participation from families, employees, board, trustees, and alumni
- $120,000 for faculty compensation and scholarships this year
Each gift is deeply valued, every contribution makes an immediate impact. Annual Giving revenue goes directly into program and operations.
Mount Madonna School relies on supporters and families to help “bridge the gap” between tuition and the total cost of the exceptional education received by each student. Mount Madonna School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
