Letter from the President


Dear Fellow Parent,

The McGinnis Woods Parent Association is excited to share a unique and fulfilling opportunity with you. Like all of our parents, we are passionate about the experiences and opportunities our children have at school, and we want to do our part to contribute to those experiences. We recognize that tuition alone doesn’t cover all of the expenses associated with operating a private school and capital improvements are often difficult to fund. But, as parents, we can make a real difference.

That’s why we would like to make you aware of the Annual Wildcat Fund. Each year, the Wildcat Fund provides an opportunity for all parents to have a tangible, long-lasting impact on their child’s experience at McGinnis Woods in a variety of areas including Academics, Technology and Athletics. The Wildcat Fund will be used to accomplish a specific list of goals to be fulfilled within the same school year so that all students can immediately benefit from the generosity of our donors.

The Parent Association will not be sponsoring any other fundraisers for the entire school year, so the Wildcat Fund is your chance to do something special. We’ve selected an aggressive list of goals for this year and, with your help, I know we can fulfill every last goal on our list.

Our target for this year’s Wildcat Fund is $35,000. 100% of every dollar raised will be used to enhance McGinnis Woods in ways that no fundraiser or event could come close to matching. I would like to personally ask for your help. The only way the Wildcat Fund will be successful is through your generosity and passion to make a difference. Your contribution is a beautiful way to show appreciation for McGinnis Woods while, at the same time, making a solid investment in your child’s education.

This website provides great information on the Wildcat Fund, describes goals for the 2019-2020 school year, and outlines our exciting donor levels and opportunities for all who choose to contribute. You will also find an online donor form when you are ready to make your gift. We even have an option to donate via credit card payments split evenly into four monthly installments to help you maximize the contribution you’d like to make.

I hope you are excited about this opportunity and view it, like I do, as a chance to make a real and immediate impact. Also remember to share this exciting news with friends and family so they can get involved and help us make a difference. Can we count on you to help achieve our goal? Nothing is impossible if we do it together!

On behalf of myself and the entire Parent Association, I would like to express deep gratitude for your contribution and generosity.

Kindest regards,



Jason Harper

President, Parent Association
