Give to the Founders Campaign
Funds raised through the Founders Campaign have fortified and will strengthen MCI’s academics, arts and athletics programming and will increase the School’s endowment. Approximately $700,000 was used for enhancements to MCI’s athletic fields that were completed in 2015. This investment created three new multipurpose fields and renovated existing fields, making it possible for all outdoor field sports teams to practice and play on campus for the first time in the School’s history.
Funds were used for refurbishing the original math and science center to become the Visual and Performing Arts Education Center that houses music, arts, theatrical arts classes into one space. Campaign donations pay for improvements to Founders Hall, MCI’s original campus building. Final renovations involve refreshing architecturally significant details such as the building’s antique tin ceiling tile, floors and stairwells, in addition to creating a new corridor running from North to South, new restrooms, and accessibility upgrades including the addition of an elevator.
Lastly, $2 million will be invested in the School’s endowment.
The $6.5 million capital campaign has kept the cost of raising the funds to just 5% of the goal, well under the national average of 10%.
