Pterodactyl Cup Challenge 2020

This campaign ended on February 25, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Marvelwood School by clicking here!

It’s the Pterodactyl Cup Challenge 2020: please help us raise $25,000 on our 4th Annual Day of Giving! Support your favorite team: House of Doss, House of Everett, House of Sanchez, or House of West. The team with the highest number of donations wins first place; the House who brings in the most amount of money wins second place. Every gift counts! 

The winning Houses will earn points toward the year-long quest to be named Guardians of the Cup. When you make a gift, you’ll be asked to designate it to one of the four Houses. House of West won last year’s Day of Giving Challenge with 50 donations; House of Sanchez brought in the most money: $16,038. 

Your gift to the Pterodactyl Cup Challenge supports the Marvelwood Annual Fund. Every day, students and teachers benefit from the generosity of the community in supporting the Annual Fund. 

Your support matters: Help spread the word!
