WE ARE MD ANNUAL APPEAL
Ensuring the Monarch Tradition
In today's world, the challenges of education are many. We are challenged to provide the finest college preparatory education possible; to nurture our students to be caring, responsible citizens grounded in gospel values; to foster self-esteem and ethical values; and to encourage creative and critical thinking. We all share the responsibility of preparing our children to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Annual Appeal contributions are the mainstay of Mater Dei's fundraising efforts. Each year, these gifts are utilized “where the need is greatest” on the campus. In the past these areas have included, Financial Aid for qualified students; quality programs and faculty; and state-of-the-art technology. This year the need is greatest in providing adequate amounts of Financial Aid to the over 40% of our families who require Financial Aid to attend Mater Dei. The Annual Appeal consists of two need-based financial aid funds. The Annual Fund, supporting all Monarchs receiving need-based financial aid and the Alumni Heritage Fund
, supporting second and third generation Monarchs receiving need-based financial aid.
