The sole purpose of the Mason Prep Foundation is to support the mission and strategic goals of Mason Prep School.
Read the Foundation’s Mission Statement.
The Mason Prep Foundation is the fundraising arm of Mason Prep School. The Foundation’s efforts will raise funds to help Mason Prep provide financial aid to qualified Mason Prep students, promote the development of Mason Prep's faculty, and enhance and improve Mason Prep's facilities and its educational programs.
During the remainder of the current 2016-2017 school year, the Foundation will work hard to achieve the following two goals:
(1) to raise money via the Annual Fund that will be used to enhance and improve Mason Prep’s playground/backyard
(2) to raise money that will be used by Mason Prep to provide financial aid to new and current qualified Mason Prep students beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, with the primary goals being to help make Mason Prep more affordable to as many of its current families as possible and more accessible to prospective families in our community.
If you have given to Mason Prep in the past, your gift works exactly the same way it always has. The money simply flows through the Foundation to the School.
Why form a Foundation?
Focus: The Foundation Board of Directors will focus on raising money for Mason Prep School. This allows the Mason Prep Board of Trustees to focus fully on the governance of the School.

Strength: Having a Foundation as a formal fundraising arm sends a strong message to prospective donors that a gift to Mason Prep School is a solid investment in the future of our community.
