Annual Fund

Annual Fund Giving

Together, we’ve faced the challenges of this year and remained true to our mission. With your help, WE WILL continue to overcome, improve, and thrive. Please make your gift to the 2021-22 Annual. Go, Owls!

By giving to the Annual Fund, you touch every aspect of school life – academics, athletics, the arts, extracurricular programs, technology, and facilities. In other words, a donation to the Annual Fund benefits every boy every day. It is the Annual Fund that allows MUS to say “yes” when faculty or students have new and exciting ideas that would remain only ideas without the necessary resources. A strong and growing Annual Fund ensures that MUS will continue to offer the best in all areas to all students.
The school’s success relies on the support of alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, trustees, businesses, friends of MUS – and you. Last year our loyal supporters contributed $1.5 million to the Annual Fund in unrestricted gifts, helping to keep tuition costs lower. 

MUS has several contribution levels, from Donor (less than $50) to the Ross M. Lynn Society ($5,000 or more). Every contribution is vital in maintaining MUS's tradition of excellence and furthering our mission of developing well-rounded young men of strong moral character.
