Support MCDS

Partnership and Philanthropy: the core of our MCDS community

At MCDS our mission is to create an inclusive community of learning that inspires curiosity, empathy and action.

We depend on philanthropy to deliver this exceptional MCDS experience – where our children thrive, gain a strong sense of self, and develop a lifelong love of learning, in a diverse and inclusive environment.

MCDS was built on a strong foundation of giving. Beginning in 1956, our founders relied on both the strength of community partnership and philanthropic generosity to create a school with children at the center. 

We ask all members of our community to make personally meaningful contributions. Each gift directly impacts students, teachers and staff, academic programs, and our campus. Giving is also reciprocal and it cultivates a deeper sense of connection between each of us.

We envision a future where young people work together creatively to build a more inclusive and sustainable world.  Every philanthropic action supports this bold vision.  - MCDS Philanthropy Mission Statement 2023
