While gifts to Annual Giving help to cover the school’s yearly operating expenses, MDS relies on leadership gifts to capital initiatives and the endowment in order to fund larger needs. Capital gifts help to fund building and technology projects. Recent contributions, for example, have helped to renovate our gym and build the Toddler Building. Gifts to the endowment help to secure the school’s long-term financial stability and to fund current priorities through ongoing interest generated by the endowment. The endowment has also helped fund our year end student academic and athletic awards.
Our endowment needs to be strengthened. You may wish to start an endowment fund in your name or the name of a loved one. The annual income generated from that fund will be directed as needed or as requested by you, the donor.
Increasing our endowment will enable MDS to:
Today's students benefit from the endowment gifts of previous generations. Tomorrow's MDS is being created by today's endowment gifts.
