MPCS Foundation

The MPCS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that raises money for our school.

During the 2019-2020 school year, the Foundation raised approximately $46,000 through the Fun Run and $38,000 during the Annual Give. Our Spring Auction, which was delayed until August and changed to a virtual event due to COVID-19, raised over $30,000.

With these funds, the Foundation is able to:

  • Aid professional development and training for our faculty
  • Support our Waldorf-inspired classrooms and curriculum
  • Provide grant matching and funds for capital improvements to our campus

How Can YOU Help?

By financially supporting the Fun Run, Annual Give, and Auction, and assisting in successfully running these events/campaigns, you can help ensure the financial security of our school and enhance the arts-based education available to our community.

Do you have experience with (or a desire to learn about) grant writing, capital campaigns, accounting, database management, or tax/legal guidance for 501(c)(3) organizations? If you do and you’d like to help, please contact foundation@mountainphoenix.org. The Foundation has five board members, and we are always looking for additional help with our fundraising efforts.

Tammy Anander

Foundation President

I am happy to be a part of the Foundation, it plays such an important role at our school. My husband teaches in the middle school and we have 2 children who attend MPCS. I am very committed to the success of our school. We have been at the school since 2011 when the Wheat Ridge campus opened and are so happy to have found such a wonderful community to be a part of.

I was the marketing co-chair for 2 years and have volunteered in both of my children’s classrooms. My professional experience ranges from public involvement to bookkeeping and project controls, all for a large scale engineering firm where I currently specialize in safety management and analysis. I am also the accountant for a small consulting firm and I have my own photography company. My formal education is in fine arts and business and public administration.
