Through fundraisers, generous contributions from friends of RMMS, and the Endowment Campaign, the Foundation has been able to annually endorse multiple and widely varied projects. Since 1998, these grants have totaled more than two-hundred thousand dollars. Monies are granted to subsidize educational programs, experiences and materials that support the RMMS Mission, but that cannot be paid for from the regular school operating budget.
Please consider donating to support educational grants that enhance the RMMS mission and curriculum. It’s easy. Just visit our Donate page and give.
Tax deductible contributions may be designated for the general Foundation fund, for a specific area or purpose, or be made to two specifically named alumni memorial grants:
The Andrew DeJong Nature’s Scholarship Grant
The David Isbell STEM Grant
