USM, Better Together

This campaign ends on July 1 at 12:59AM EDT

In preparation for the new school year, we are asking every member of the USM family to step up early with your  best gift for USM -  This is how you can help best help our school during these unprecedented times and also ensure a successful transition for our new head of school, Steve Hancock.

The USM Fund, is the greatest annual source of dependable and flexible funding for the school. New this year, we have also created the Bridge Fund  for supplemental resources in this time of transition. Together, contributions from our community to the USM Fund and the Bridge Fund will be earmarked for essential safety infrastructure and for unforeseen issues stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. 

USM currently has the following additional needs:

  • New filtration technology for all air handler systems on campus to help kill pathogens ($200,000)
  • New Meeting Owl technology in all grades to help deliver hybrid face-to-face online learning ($100,000)
  • Increased frequency of cleaning and sanitizing procedures with new equipment and increased staffing ($200,000)
  • Short term tuition relief for returning school families in need ($750,000)

Your gift will help USM achieve the $1,750,000 needed for our school operations for the 2020-21 school year. Throughout our history, our school community has unified together to overcome challenges, support families, faculty and staff, and stay true to its guiding principles. Please participate in affirming USM’s strengths by making your gift today!

Thank you for believing in the value of a USM education and supporting us when we need it most. We are stronger and better together! #USMTOGETHER

Please select designation in the giving form when making your gift!
