Middleburg Charter School

2019 MCCS Challenge Grant Campaign

Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, MCCS has the opportunity to match funds raised up to $200,000 by the end of 2019. Due to our charter distinction, we have expenses and academic goals that exceed funds allotted by Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS). As a proud community charter school, MCCS is seeking financial support in the form of monetary donations from our community, friends, and family to help us realize this dollar-for-dollar matching opportunity. It is because of this generous community that our school has stayed open, offering a quality, elementary education since the 1880s.  Find out more information at:  

[The Town of Middleburg does not endorse any specific fundraising effort but is passing this along to the community for awareness and consideration.]
