MSSA Support Drive

Thank you for participating in our annual support drive!

Instead of selling things, collecting money, turning in money, getting things, and distributing things, we’re going to try something new – a simple donation fundraiser!

There are four main areas where funds are needed; Arts, Academics, Athletics, and Teacher and Staff Appreciation Fund. You can direct your contribution to one of these specific funds or donate to the general fund which will be used as needed, whether to supplement one of the other buckets that are low or to have on hand for any additional needs. You may also spread your contribution out to several funds; to do that, you will need to make individual contributions to each fund. To begin, simply view the areas of need below and click the “donate” button beside that fund.

NOTE: You do not need a PayPal account. You can donate through PayPal with a debit or credit card by clicking the link by “Don’t have a PayPal account? Use your credit card or bank account” near the bottom of the donation page.
