Support Us

The MIMS community relies on your time, money, and service to support the students. Each member of the MIMS community should plan to give in one of the categories below.

Give time

There are many volunteer opportunities at MIMS, through the PTO, the school, and the classroom. Review the volunteer opportunities and submit the form to get involved. Throughout the year, additional opportunities and requests for help will be posted here and shared with families. Share your expertise with the school to enrich our students’ lives.

Individuals must be VIPS approved and follow school guidelines when volunteering.

Give money

Money can take the form of grants that MIMS community members apply for on behalf of the school, direct monetary donations, or donations matched by an employer or other organization. Monetary support also includes supporting MIMS fundraising efforts (e.g., boosterthon, sociables, spirit nights, birthday marquee, and CNY sponsorships to name a few).

Contact the PTO board for larger grants or sponsorships. For donations under $1000, use the online store or contact the fundraising chairs.

Give service

Service typically means in kind donation from your business or other organization (e.g., restaurants who donate food or support spirit nights, have signs made, donate party experiences and supplies).
