Support FAQ

What is the purpose of the Annual Appeal?

The Annual Appeal is an opportunity for MSB to meet operating costs while keeping tuition low. Tuition alone does not cover our expenses. Your generous donations are 100% deductible and help us bridge the gap.

Why not just raise tuition?

Promoting socio-economic diversity , as well as cultural diversity is very important to our mission. The Annual Appeal provides a way for families to give what they can and receive a tax-deduction.
