#MerryMatch 2017: Thanks!

The #MerryMatch was a huge success, thanks to you!  Your gift will go toward financial aid, professional development for teachers, and technology in the classroom.

$49,258: amount given by parents, students, staff, and friends
$56,577: matching gift from the Board of Trustees

Here’s how Merry Match works:

  • Support MSS students by making a donation to the Mustard Seed Fund on December 5, 6, or 7.
  • Gifts between $1-$99 will be matched with $100 from the Board of Trustees. If you give $20, the school will receive $120!
  • Gifts above $100 will be matched dollar for dollar: your $500 gift becomes $1,000!
  • Every household is eligible for one Merry Match.
  • Everyone is welcome to participate. Spread the word!

what about student participation?!

Don’t worry! During the Merry Match, classrooms participate in Merry Match Jr.  Students are encouraged to contribute money that they have earned or a prayer for the community to their class Merry Match Jr. collection. Baskets for Merry Match Jr. are located in the student’s classroom during Merry Match. At the end of the Merry Match Jr., the sum of the class collection will be matched using the Merry Match guidelines.

  • A class gift of $1-$99 will be matched with $100.
  • Class gifts over $100 will be matched dollar for dollar.
  • In addition, classes with 100% class participation will receive a bonus match of $100.

 Join us and give the gift of education. Make a Merry Match and make a foundational difference in the lives of our students.

Thank you!
