Fundraising and Volunteerism
As is the norm in private schools, the actual cost to educate each child is not fully covered by tuition and fees. MWS can operate with this tuition schedule largely because of funds received from the voluntary, tax-deductible contributions of families and friends through our Annual Campaign. The volunteer efforts of our community also earn revenue for our school. These efforts include the Holiday Fair, School Store, Coffee Cart and Frolic Fundraiser and Dance Gala. Each adult in the family is asked to contribute 8 hours of volunteer time during each school year in support of these fundraisers. If you have any questions pertaining to fundraising, please contact our Development Director at 651-487-6700 ext: 203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
