Annual Giving Campaign
About the Annual Campaign
There is a $3,000 gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each MIS student. Your gift to our Annual Giving Campaign helps us keep tuition affordable and helps us generate more from Foundations and Grants!
High rates of participation by families, teachers and staff encourage foundations to support MIS. As of March 2019, 70 percent of families and 99 percent of staff have donated just over $85,000 toward our campaign. If you’ve not given yet, your gift will be doubled by an anonymous donor through May 31!
We invite you to express your faith and belief in Catholic education with a gift to the Annual Giving Program. Together we can continue the tradition of generosity and quality education at Mary Immaculate School.
How are gifts Applied?
Tuition Gap. Ninety percent of your tax-deductible contribution to our Annual Giving Campaign bridges the $3,000 gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each child.
Endowment. Ten percent of your gift will feed into our $1 million endowment fund.
Home Improvements. If we exceed our goal, extra dollars will be applied toward "home improvements." After all, our school building is sixty years old! We need energy efficient windows, new ceiling tiles, bathroom partitions and more. These kinds of repairs aren't a part of annual maintenance. These are part of our eight-phase plan (click here for more). Phase I (Jr. High Wing) took place in Summer 2017.
Many corporations will match your gifts "dollar for dollar." Imagine turning your $250 gift into $500! Contact the Development Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 972-243-7105 ext. 151 if your company offers matching gifts.
MIS staff and families are asked to commit support each year. Our goal is 100 percent participation and $100,000. Truly, gifts of any amount help! You can donate online, complete/mail a pledge card, or simply send a check with a note to apply it to Annual Giving.
Special thanks to our many volunteers who helped us reach as many families as possible in achieving this year’s goal. The NTG Core Team members include Frances Cruz, Gabe Cruz, Amy Hill, Carl Flusche. Campaign leaders include Raquel Guardado Guzman, Amy Hill, Margherita Jimenez, Noemi Mendez-Hyams, Marisa Partin, Nichole Peck, Andre Schwitter and Trish Zang.
100% match through may!
A very generous, anonymous donor will match all gifts made to this campaign from March 20 through May 31, 2019! That means $50 becomes $100… $250 becomes $500 and $500 becomes $1K!
We need to raise $15K before May 31 to reach our goal. Click the button above or mail a check to MICS, attention “Development Director.” On behalf of our 450 students, their families and staff, thank you for your generosity!
