Supplemental Indexed Tuition Fund
"I heard that we are all in the same boat, but it's not like that. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked, and mine might not be. Or vice versa." - Unknown
The lines above came from a poem that was recently posted widely on social media. While all families are affected by COVID-19, we are affected in very different ways. Some have the financial, physical, and social resources to be okay. Some will not make it through this storm without support.
I've thought a lot about the shared vision, values and can-do spirit that have strengthened this community for 64 years, through good times and rough seas. We can seize this moment to step up and face this storm together.
Mirroring the amazing generosity our community put forth during the 2008 downturn, we invite our extended community to join in a a fundraising effort for indexed tuition operating funds, and a short term reserve for families who need support over the next few years.
We are already hearing about families who are asking for financial support the first time, or needing additional support due to a loss of job or closure of their business. We very much hope that the diverse community that we all treasure will continue to thrive through these challenging waters together we can ensure that no family has to make the hard decision to leave MCDS for financial reasons.
We appreciate your support!
