Giving

Mountain Phoenix Community School believes that children prosper when their curriculum is varied and includes movement and artistic activities. Because we are a charter school, we have the ability to create an inspiring, arts-based environment of learning and adventure unlike other public schools.

We are also a public school and while we do receive district funding for each student, we also have expenses that neighborhood schools don’t. We must pay for our own facilities — pay our mortgage, as well as repairs and maintenance on our campus. While we do generate income to cover these expenses, it’s just enough to break even and doesn’t cover additional improvements we need to make.

During the school year, MPCS Foundation hosts three different fundraisers; Fun Run, Annual Give, and Auction. Please be aware that requested monetary donations are separate from the volunteer requirement.

For example:

  • If you sponsor your child(ren) for the Fun Run, this does not count towards your volunteer requirement.
  • If you donate for the Annual Give, this does not count towards your volunteer requirement.
  • If you bid on or purchase something at the Auction, this does not count towards your volunteer requirement. (If you donate items or money towards the class basket or project for the Auction, this does count towards your volunteer requirement.)

If you are doubt, please ask!
