You might have noticed MA’s videos are incredibly creative and fun (we know, we’re biased. But still!). It’s all thanks to Marci Velando, Communications Associate, Photographer, and Photoshop Wiz. If you get six friends to make a gift on Giving Day, Marci will create a custom Zoom background, just for you. Swap that boring home office wall for the set of Star Wars or expansive views of the Pacific… or ?

Make your gift to Giving Day and you will be invited to a special MA Variety Hour on Friday, May 15 at 4:00 p.m. PST! This fun-filled virtual get-together will be moderated by history teacher Bill Meyer and will include music performances and conversations with a spectacular line-up of MA alumni and faculty. Don’t miss out—make your gift now to attend!

These are unprecedented and challenging times. Indeed, it is in these times that our community needs each other more than ever.

On May 14, the MA community will come together for our 4th annual Giving Day. This year, the Wildcat will take us through four years at MA, reminding us all of what it's like to progress from an awestruck freshman to a versed sophomore; then a calm, cool, and collected junior; and finally on to... well, you know our dynamic seniors!

As you follow the Wildcat through the MA experience, we are asking YOU to join in to help us reach our goal of 300 gifts in 24 hours. To make the greatest possible impact on our community at this moment in time, we encourage you to direct your gift to the Annual Fund toward Tuition Assistance. If we reach 300 gifts, we will unlock a generous $40,000 challenge from our incredible Board of Trustees.

Here's how you can help us reach our goal and make the biggest possible impact:

1. Make your gift to the Annual Fund towards Tuition Assistance.

2. Share with your friends, family, and classmates by email, text, and social media. Encourage them to join you in supporting this important cause! Click here for our Social Media Toolkit to get you started.

3. Follow along here and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for our Wildcat videos and other fun content. Share your own MA experiences using the #OneDayOneMA hashtag.

Let's do this!!!

Calling all alums - check out Bill Meyer's personal plea!
