Exciting News: Imagine Tomorrow Challenge

Exciting News: Imagine Tomorrow Challenge

We are thrilled to announce that MPCS has been awarded a challenge grant of $1,250,000 by an anonymous foundation! As a result of high parent support every year in the Annual Fund, a strong Board of Trustees, and inspiring plans for the Murray Innovation Center, the foundation saw fit to make this huge investment in the future of MPCS! Now, they have challenged our school community to raise the remaining funds needed to complete the Murray Innovation Center project.

With this challenge grant, we have raised approximately $9.5M in gifts and pledges toward our $12M goal. This is incredible! But, in order to realize the challenge grant, our MPCS community must raise the remaining $2.5M — $10.5M by June 30 and then $12M by mid-August.

We hope you are inspired by the plans presented at imagine. If you have been considering your personal support of the campaign and praying about a pledge, we need YOU now! Click to visit our campaign web page or contact our development office about creative ways to structure a three-year pledge. Thank you for your generosity and prayers thus far!
