2017 Annual Give

Community First Foundation-Colorado Gives Day 12.05.17

Why the Annual Give Is So Important

By donating to the Annual Give, you ensure the financial security of MPCS and enhance the arts-based education available to our community. The money helps to support our Waldorf teaching methods and specials such as handwork, music, games/PE, Eurythmy, art, and Spanish. It also helps with faculty professional development and training, Waldorf-inspired classrooms and curriculum, as well as capital improvements on our campus.

Please reach out to family, friends and neighbors to help with this initiative.

Thank you for your help…it means so much to our school!

How Much Should I Give?

We are asking for a $400 donation per student to meet our $200,00 fundraising goal.

Here is how your contribution might look for your family based on the number of children you have enrolled:

Children at MPCS Annual Donation Per Month Per Week
1 $400 $40 $10
2 $800 $80 $20
3 $1200 $120 $30

You can set up your donation to be a recurring gift on the Colorado Gives website.

We understand that some families are able to give more, and some less. We are beyond grateful for anything you can give. We ask that everyone give a meaningful gift, no matter the amount.

100% participation from our community is critical because supporters outside the school – donors, prospective families, grantors, look closely at that support percentage. The more that we give as a community, the more likely that they will give to us!

Classroom Incentives

We are striving for 100% participation in every class! Every gift is welcomed and so appreciated, no matter the amount.

How Your Donation Will Support MPCS

This year we are celebrating a big accomplishment; the installation of a new playground! It took several years of fundraising earn the $150,000 that we needed, but we did it. Our hard work has finally come to fruition and our children are already benefiting from our hard work.

Happy Kids on Our New Playground
