The MacDowell team occasionally leads fundraisers to support school trips and the purchase of supplies. Currently, the team is leading a fundraiser to support the middle schoolers' trip to camp this Spring! Click the logo to support this fundraising campaign!

In-kind Donations


Running schools requires supplies, furniture, books, and many other items that sometimes don't fit into a tight school budget. MacDowell Preparatory Academy maintains a wish list of items that would be most helpful to the school. Please be sure to include your name and e-mail address on the gift receipt so we are able to thank you properly!
