Tuition covers approximately 81% of the actual cost of educating a child at Media-Providence Friends School, leaving the balance to be met through other revenue sources. The most significant of these is the MPFS Fund. This Fund provides essential unrestricted revenue that directly impacts daily life here at school. Specifically, donations help to fund competitive teacher salaries and benefits, professional development, need-based financial aid, computer equipment, classroom supplies, arts programs, Spanish language instruction and much more.
The MPFS Fund is supported by a large cross section of our community: parents, teachers, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents f(F)riends of the school and more. It is also the first way that many graduates and parents express their desire to give back, and its health is both a sign of gratitude for the donors and a vote of confidence for our students and faculty.
We’re counting on you. Every gift matters. Every personally significant gift, no matter the size, demonstrates a collective commitment to MPFS. Indeed, the only gift too small is no gift at all.
The MPFS Fund is conducted during the school’s current fiscal year, running from July 1 – June 30. A pledge or gift may be made at anytime. Gifts made on or before December 31 are eligible to be claimed as a current year tax deduction.
