Four Pillars of Giving


Our students are our inspiration and your donation is an acknowledgment of your belief in a Morgan Park Academy education. The Gala supports our Four Pillars of Giving!

No material prizes are offered during an Altruistic Auction. Guests will be asked to raise their paddles in support of the Academy’s Four Pillars of Giving. The reward is the priceless feeling that comes from making a positive difference in the lives of Morgan Park Academy students and faculty.

This event kicks off our Annual Giving Fund pledge drive, and we hope to raise 50% of our $550,000 goal the night of the Gala. We also hope to achieve 100% participation from Academy families and 100% participation from alumni.

Even if you can’t make the event, you can still use this occasion to make your contribution to the Annual Giving Fund. Contact Vincent Hermosilla at 773-881-0667 or donate online.

100% of your contribution to the Annual Giving Fund given during the Altruistic Auction is tax deductible.

Absolutely! We encourage you to ask your employer if there is a matching gift program available. This is a wonderful way to make your contribution go even further in assisting Morgan Park Academy.
