Another successful One Day for MICDS is in the books!
Despite a soggy day on campus, the far-reaching Ram community truly came together virtually (where the weather was much more pleasant) for an online challenge in support of the students—exceeding our goals along the way. On Wednesday, January 18, parents rallied en masse and made a difference, with participation numbers increasing significantly.
We are excited to report that 454 alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends collaborated to raise over $179,000 in a mere 24 hours. The entire day was a phenomenal show of support and school spirit. Several generous donors issued matches and challenges throughout the day and night, and our MICDS family stepped up every time. Participants even tackled a challenge that pushed us over 400 donors and, more importantly, earned our students a special lunch of their choosing this spring!
The School is so appreciative of all those who participated in One Day for MICDS and is overwhelmed with gratitude.
On behalf of our students and faculty who are the direct beneficiaries of your support we say a hearty
Gifts to ONE DAY have an immediate impact on the day-to-day experience of MICDS students, and donors were able to designate their gifts to the areas most meaningful to them.
Thanks again for all your support, see you next year! Last year was a blizzard, this year a rainstorm, and if the trend continues in that direction, we’re looking forward to sunny skies and warmer temperatures. See you then!
