The MCS Annual Fund 

Reaching Above and Beyond: Growing in Faith, Academics, and Leadership

Mater Christi School is able to continue Reaching Above and Beyond: Growing in Faith, Academics, and Leadership because of generous gifts to our annual fund. Last year, we asked our community to help us open doors, open minds, and open hearts, and you supported our school in unprecedented ways: 254 donors helped us raise nearly $300,000 for the MCS annual fund!

During this time when joining together as a Mater Christi School family continues to be more important than ever, we are again counting on you to partner with us in support of our annual fund. Many of you have already made gifts to our 2021-2022 annual fund, and we are so grateful for your support! Participation in the annual fund directly and immediately benefits students and teachers, and it sends a strong message of support for our mission and helps us to secure gifts from other sources. Every gift is greatly appreciated and enables us to provide an outstanding educational experience through which our students grow spiritually, intellectually, and interpersonally.

We recently announced that Mater Christi School has been blessed by several generous donors with matching gifts totaling $130,000! These gifts provide two extraordinary opportunities to double the impact of your annual fund gift:

  • All Leadership Circle annual fund gifts ($2,500 or greater), up to a total of $100,000 will be matched!
  • All annual fund gifts of any amount, up to a total of $30,000, will be matched!

Last year, 52% of current MCS families made annual fund gifts — a new record for our school. Inspired by this community involvement, a special MCS family wants to help the participation continue to grow! They will contribute $100 for each current MCS family that supports the annual fund with a gift of any amount. If Mater Christi School surpasses last year’s current family participation rate, this family will make an additional $10,000 gift to our annual fund!
