MPA 2020 Spring Auction: Light Up the Night was virtual!
Friday, April 17, 2020, 6:30 PM

Wow–without a doubt, our first-ever MPA Virtual Spring Auction: Light Up the Night was a huge success!

Our incredibly generous community rallied together and raised $225,685! MPA families, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, and friends joined together as a community to dream big, do right, and light up the world. Thank you for being part of the most successful auction in several years!

Thanks to our community, we have gotten a jump start on our Community Care Fund by raising $92,875 during the Spring Auction, which includes a $20,000 challenge gift because the community reached $70,000! These flexible funds will allow us to respond to emerging needs, including:

  • financial assistance for MPA families in need;
  • technology access for teachers to continue enhancing virtual learning;
  • employee support funds for wellness and emergency resources; and
  • the cost of additional supplies to ensure a whole child education can continue, including art supplies, books and e-books, software and hardware, and devices for families without access to adequate technology or wi-fi for virtual learning.

As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to impact MPA families, we want to be ready to respond and ensure students, families, and employees have what they need during these challenging times. If you missed your chance to help us establish this fund, you can still click here to make a gift today toward the Community Care Fund.

Please contact Jennifer Rogers, Director of Development and Community Relations, via email or at 651-748-5532 with any questions.

About Mounds Park Academy
Mounds Park Academy engages students in a rigorous college-preparatory experience that cultivates dreamers and doers. Our academic program is demanding, but not draining, and goes far beyond memorization. Students are challenged to apply their understanding to stir the human spirit, stand for justice, and shake the world. This is what we call rigor with purpose and it grounds our students in the radical idea that their identity in the world is not measured by a test score, but by the depth and decency of their impact on the world.

Bidding is now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated!
