Support MSD’s Annual Fund

Supporting the Annual Fund makes good things happen at MSD!

When you give to the Annual Fund, your goodness makes a great impact.

Every gift has impact at MSD. From keeping up our incredible campus to creating extraordinary learning experiences for students, every single gift impacts the young minds at MSD and propels them into the future with a love of learning and a sense of discovery.

Learn about the Annual Fund:


  • A gift to the Annual Fund supports our students, faculty, and staff and helps to sustain our future.
  • As with all independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student and operating our school. The gap between what you pay for tuition and what it actually costs to run MSD is about $1,677 per student.
  • To make up the difference, we count on all members of the MSD community – parents, Trustees, faculty, staff, grandparents, students, alums, parents of alums, and friends of MSD–to help our school be the best it can be.
  • We need 100% faculty, staff, Board, and family participation. MSD applies for multiple grants every year, and parent participation in our annual fundraising event is criteria used by ALL funding organizations, as these funders look to that number to determine if parents support and believe in their child’s school.

    A gift to the Annual Fund can support MSD in many ways!

    Preparing our students for a technology-driven world requires everything from Zoom accounts to iPads®, keeping us all plugged in and ready for big thinking.

    Three cheers for making everyone feel welcome and giving the opportunity of an MSD education to tons of amazing kids. This is what makes our community great.

    Every classroom at MSD is filled with incredible, unique, Montessori materials that serve as teaching tools. This fund helps us maintain and add to our treasured learning resources.

    We are so proud of all the ways we bring the world to our students through field trips, speakers, community gatherings, and more. This fund makes sure they are always discovering and exploring the world beyond our campus.

    Our teachers are passionate learners and that translates into incredible classrooms. This fund helps support them as they attend cool webinars, workshops, and conferences. Yay, teachers!!

    This important fund is there for whatever pops up and needs our attention. It is an awesome way to make sure we have resources to make every day at MSD something great.

    Our fantastic campus is part of what makes MSD so unique, from Art Barn to Science Tower to the Treehouse. This fund makes sure we keep up all our spaces, inside and out.
