Thanks to our incredibly generous community, the first-ever MPA Virtual Spring Auction: Light up the Night was a huge success! Our community joined together to raise nearly $230,000! MPA families, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends joined together as a community to dream big, do right, and light up the world. Thank you for being part of the most successful auction in several years!

Thanks to our community, we have gotten a jump start on our Community Care Fund. These flexible funds will allow us to respond to emerging needs, including:
- financial assistance for MPA families in need;
- technology access for teachers to continue enhancing virtual learning;
- employee support funds for wellness and emergency resources; and
- the cost of additional supplies to ensure a whole child education can continue, including art supplies, books and e-books, software and hardware, and devices for families without access to adequate technology or wi-fi for virtual learning.
As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact MPA families, we want to be ready to respond and ensure students, families, and employees have what they need during these challenging times. If you missed your chance to help us establish this fund, you can still make a gift today toward the Community Care Fund.
