Giving FAQ

What is Momentum?

Each year, families will be asked to give a gift to Momentum, Mulgrave's Annual Fund. The funds will go to special projects and initiatives that have been identified by our leadership team. In the 2019-2020 academic year, we will focus on teacher retention and development, classroom resources and equipment, and scholarships through our endowment fund. 

Our greatest wish is that our families make a donation at a level that is meaningful to them every year that they are at the school. With this support, we can continue to enrich the provision we give to each of our students. 

Why does Mulgrave have an Annual Fundraising Campaign?

Momentum - Mulgrave's Annual Fund - has been developed to support the school’s priorities each year. This fundraising appeal will allow the Head of School to designate funding to areas where it is needed most: scholarships and financial assistance, classroom resources and equipment, and teacher development and retention.

Why are we asked to contribute annually?

Annual contributions to Momentum not only show community support for our strategic plan, but also allow the administration to plan ahead to meet the wishes of our departments and teaching staff.

How will my donation be used? What will my gift support?

Donations to Momentum will be allocated to a Head’s Discretionary Fund to take advantage of opportunities and support the school’s priorities. Unrestricted funding gives the school the most flexibility so that we can adapt to changing circumstances as they arise.

Will my gift make a difference?

Although traditionally at Mulgrave we have needed large gifts to meet the fundraising goals of our capital campaigns, we are now shifting to a model that is more sustainable and gives every family the ability to contribute in whatever way is meaningful to them.

All gifts to our Annual Campaign will be used to support the initiatives that both John Wray and the faculty have identified as priorities. So yes, each and every gift will make a difference to all of our students. 

How much should I give?

Although we ask that you put Mulgrave on your philanthropic priority list and have suggested gift amounts on our donation form, gifts of all sizes are celebrated and valued.

Participation in the annual campaign is probably the most important part of this model. By supporting the school financially, families are illustrating their collective support for the Board of Directors and the Head of School.
