Support MCDS

Philanthropy and partnership: the core of our MCDS community

The true meaning of philanthropy is the love of humankind. Its definition is the desire to benefit others, expressed by the generous donation of time, talent, and financial support to good causes.

Since our founding in 1956, MCDS has relied on the generosity of our extended community. Like independent schools across the nation, fundraising is a critical component of the operating budget. Your contributions enable us to pursue our mission to create an inclusive community of learning that inspires curiosity, empathy, and action. We envision a future where young people work together creatively to build a more inclusive and sustainable world. Your generosity is key to our success.
