Special Appeal

Each year at our Annual Gala Fundraiser, Shining Mountain asks our community to contribute to a “Special Appeal” in order to fund discrete items that are outside our operating expenses, yet are needed to improve our campus, facilities or programs. In the past, our community has generously donated to the Special Appeal to purchase new desks on the lower school campus, Solar tubes natural lighting fixtures, two new school buses for athletics and field trips, outdoor education and circus equipment for the middle school, an updated High School Science lab, a Performing Arts program upgrade — and more!

The Special Appeal item is typically selected by the faculty each year, and is an item specifically chosen that will directly impact the children’s experience of the curriculum. This Special Appeal fundraiser is an opportunity for the community to come together in direct support our school and the children’s education.
