BENEFITING: Mary McDowell Friends School
Participation %: 100
Dear wonderful co-workers,
Every day at MMFS, we all work hard to help our students achieve the level of success we know they can achieve. We do this because their commitment to learning, against all of the odds they face, is inspiring.
It’s hard to believe - but MMFS started off in one room of a basement with only 5 students. In just 34 years, it has grown to three buildings with 393 students. They came because the community that was forming - the community that we are growing and building upon everyday - was unique and wonderful, and it was filling a void that should not exist for our students.
This is all to say that we are proud to work at MMFS. We are proud of our students, our colleagues, and our families who support us - and we want this school to continue on this incredible path.
As faculty members, we feel that it is important to make a donation to the MMFS Fund each year. It is our way of showing support for a community that we are proud to be a part of, and which we believe is making a real difference in the lives of students with learning disabilities. We also know that it is the MMFS Fund that allows us to continue to grow as a community, as tuition does not cover all of the school’s expenses.
Our goal is to reach 100% participation before November 21st. To have 100% support from our faculty and staff is an extremely powerful statement that helps the school increase donations from those both inside and outside of our community. It says to potential funders that the people who work here are so committed, that they are willing to personally support the school's efforts with a financial contribution.
We hope that we can count on you this year to make a donation to the MMFS Fund, to ensure that the school has every resource it needs to provide exceptional education, now and in the years to come.
