Annual Giving Campaign The Annual Giving Campaign, a community-wide direct mail effort, is the Foundation's largest fundraiser, generating more than half of the total funds raised in our fiscal year. The Foundation has conducted an Annual Giving Campaign since 1999.
The support of our financial donors including individuals, family foundations, community members, and businesses, along with corporate matching gifts, is sincerely appreciated.
The 2013-2014 Annual Giving Campaign generated more than $200,000. The 2014-2015 Annual Campaign is currently underway and runs through January.
Tartan Ball...now the Tartan Bash The Tartan Bash (originally known as the Tartan Ball) is a community-wide event that provides an opportunity for all members from the Mequon-Thiensville community to join together to celebrate our exemplary schools. This fun, social fundraising event has been an annual tradition since 2000.
In 2014, the Tartan Bash was held at the the River Club of Mequon with the theme "A Celebration for Education". This school year, the "Mad for Plaid" Tartan Bash will be held on January 24th, 2015, at the beautiful River Club of Mequon.
