Giving Opportunities

Throughout the years JMSG has received essential support from countless individuals, foundations, and corporations who believe in our mission and core values. This generosity has been critical to the school’s success. While tuition makes up a majority of the school’s budget, additional funds come from fundraising. These giving opportunities help bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating each girl.

List of 5 items.

  • The Girls' Fund

    Our number one priority continues to be 100% participation from parents, board members, staff, and faculty in The Girls' Fund. The Girls Fund is the most important JMSG fundraising campaign.
    The Girls' Fund provides essential revenue for the operating budget. Each year, all JMSG parents, board members, faculty, alum, friends, and many of our grandparents receive letters asking for a tax-deductible contribution to the school. A broadly-supported fundraising demonstrates to corporations and foundations, from whom we seek funding, that JMSG is an organization worthy of support. Because 100% participation is so important, we expect every family to participate. Every gift, large or small, makes a huge difference!
  • Athena Fund

    The Athena Fund is an endowed fund restricted to benefit flexible tuition. Currently, 35% of the students who attend JMSG receive financial support. In order for the school to continue providing this level of support and ensure that girls (regardless of economic means) have the opportunity to pursue their dreams through a Julia Morgan School education, the school will continue its efforts to raise seed money for this endowment.
  • Mural of Women

    The Mural of Women celebrates the women, renowned and lesser known, who inspire our students to pursue their dreams. A contribution of $500 to the Julia Morgan School for Girls will enable you to honor a woman who has been inspirational in your life. Julia Morgan School students will create an original ceramic tile designed specifically to celebrate your honoree. These tiles will be installed at school as part of our mural of women. Also, a one-page biography of your honoree will be included in our Book of Women, a compilation of women’s biographies kept on display at JMSG.
