During the past few years, thanks to people just like you, Mounds Park Academy has experienced a resurgence. Our community members have stood up for what they value and given generously to enhance our programs, fund new initiatives, offer tuition assistance, provide resources for teachers, and improve our facilities.

Your efforts inspired us to consider how we can take MPA even further, and in 2019, we're introducing Together, We Dream: The Campaign for MPA to grow the future of Mounds Park Academy. This campaign is guided by Momentum 2020, MPA's strategic plan, and built on our charge to prepare students to live, learn, and thrive in today's 21st century globalized society.

This $5 million campaign encompasses four specific projects that cannot be supported through annual giving or operations:

  • Creating New Learning Environments through a new library: $2 million
  • Enhancing Social Environments through a new commons, cafeteria, and kitchen: $2 million
  • Securing Our Future by growing our endowment: $500,000
  • Advancing Athletics and Panther Pride through a renovated outdoor track: $500,000

The Board of Trustees is committed to financing these projects through the generosity of our community, rather than taking on debt. These projects are an exciting opportunity to move toward the future of MPA.

At the same time, we need to continue to fund the important priorities of the annual fund. As a nonprofit institution, we rely on charitable gifts to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of an MPA college-preparatory education. Tuition and other revenue covers approximately 81 percent of MPA's operating expenses. Charitable gifts, typically given annually, close the gap and provide the foundation for continued investments in our curriculum, facilities, and faculty. We hope you'll consider gifts in support of these two distinct ways to give at MPA.

If you have any questions about giving at MPA or would like to discuss the variety of opportunities that are available to maximize your gift, please contact Jennifer Rogers, director of development and community engagement, at 651-748-5532 or jrogers@moundsparkacademy.org.

Thank you for your generosity!
