In 2018, MKA celebrated the close of Future Forward: A Campaign for MKA raising close to $31 million in philanthropic support. Publicly launched in 2013 with a goal of raising #30 million, Future Forward was a comprehensive fundraising campaign to ensure continues excellence in education at MKA. The most ambitious and far-reaching campaign in the school’s history, Future Forward featured gifts from over 4,700 donors, added over $3 million in new gifts to our endowment, and grew our annual giving program to $1.3 million annually.
Through the generous support of our donors, this campaign allowed us to make transformational changes to our school, including:
- A beautifully renovated Penick Lobby, Logan Auditorium, Dining Hall, and the addition of the James and Louise Higgins Common Room
- The expansion of Muenster Field, including the Everett L. Glenn Spectator Terrace and the Strain Family Field House
- A new, state-of-the-art Upper School Academic Center that encompasses the Library, Tech Center, Academic Support, collaborative learning spaces, an outdoor amphitheater, and a green roof classroom.
The success of Future Forward will continue to impact the lives of our students, faculty, and families for decades to come. We are forever grateful to all who contributed their time, treasure, and talent to bring MKA’s future forward to today
