The Annual Fund

Join us in creating a wonder-"full" journey at MUSE

Your inspired support of MUSE means so much to us as we grow and maintain our school. Along with your time, talent, and connections, we appreciate any financial support. As we join together and share our gifts, each of us enriches the environment for all of us.

We are committed to a culture of sustainability and this includes financial well-being that will support the vision of MUSE to serve future generations. We intend to inspire our students to appreciate and create a culture-of-giving in every aspect their lives. Just as we are providing delicious and wholesome food from our gardens each day, may our students’ lives overflow to bring the fullness of life to others – that the world would come to realize a ‘life without lack’.
