The Mount Vernon Fund

Make a significant impact in the School’s 50th year

Mount Vernon turns 50 this year. As a community, we commemorate this occasion by celebrating our past and designing our future. 

A strong legacy of giving has enabled Mount Vernon to become a destination school and a leader in innovative education. Just three years ago, our Upper School building, designed to elevate the School’s innovative culture, was built from our community’s collective generosity. 

Gifts to the MV Fund, our annual giving campaign, close the gap between the necessities funded by tuition and the extra resources essential to the Mount Vernon experience. Your contribution will provide additional learning opportunities and accelerate key projects this school year.

For questions regarding Giving at Mount Vernon, please contact us.

2021-22 MVFund Priorities:

  • Replace the multipurpose field turf and practice track on Upper Campus
  • Revitalize main stages on both campuses (audio and lights)
  • Update Lower Campus gym and Preschool spaces
  • Advance Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Action initiatives
  • Provide innovative professional learning for faculty and staff
