Looking Beyond Bold Action

Thank you, 100 million times over, for your unparalleled support of Bold Action: A Campaign for MICDS. The impact of your generosity will resonate for generations. Your bold action has led to bold results allowing us to carry forward our legacy of excellence.

You may be wondering what comes next. The answer is, the newly branded MICDS Fund! Formerly known as the Annual Fund, the MICDS Fund impacts every student every day. The success of the MICDS Fund has a direct effect on our School’s annual operating budget. While campaign dollars supported new facilities, endowment priorities and programming, annual giving dollars support the current student experience, ensuring that MICDS can continue the tradition of great teaching and great learning!

In addition to the MICDS Fund, we continue to raise endowment funds. Endowment giving allows donors to make gifts that help the School in perpetuity. The School uses the earnings from the endowed funds to support faculty excellence, student access, academic programming and so much more!

Another important area of focus is planned giving. Those who make MICDS part of their estate plans are recognized as members of the Eliot and Thompson Society. These gifts are invaluable to the School because they ensure that future generations will benefit from the MICDS educational experience, and they enable donors
to leave a legacy of support to our School.
