Annual Appeal

MSB operates with predictable revenue and well-managed expenses. Our disciplined operating budget ensures a solid fiscal reserve that can weather an unpredictable economic climate. We maintain a conservative fiscal agenda with our primary focus being exceptional childhood development and education.

Tuition revenues only secure a portion of the costs of maintaining a high quality educational program. We receive no institutional support and we have no endowment acting as an undercurrent. We depend on our tuition and the annual generosity of our families and friends.

We ask that all families contribute to our Annual Appeal. Community-wide participation, at any level, is very important. Each family situation is different and gifts range from $50 – $5,000. We are a strong, galvanized community of educators. Your contribution inspires our extended family of alumni, friends and community partners to participate. And, of course, your donation is tax deductible.

Your gift is twofold. When you give, you send a message of strength and trust in MSB’s mission and legacy. By giving generously, MSB is able to keep its tuition costs lower than its competitors, while offering a higher level of education. Sure, we could raise tuition to cover the entirety of our operating costs. However, drawing some of our operating budget from voluntary contributions yields us one of the most diverse and dynamic student populations in Portland. This is one of the many factors that make MSB such an exceptional educational environment.
