MIR Fund

Support students today and leave a legacy for tomorrow

Each day a child spends at MIR is made possible by the MIR Fund. While tuition supports the basics of education at MIR, the MIR Fund provides vital financial support for

  • Program excellence and enhancements
  • Capital improvements to our facility
  • Staff training and development
  • Tuition assistance for MIR students

The MIR Fund is an annual giving program that supplements MIR's budget to ensure we can provide the best education and opportunities for students now and in the future.

Donations to the MIR Fund may be given at any time. Our fiscal year runs from July 1 of the current year through June 30 of the following year.

  • Install perimeter fencing around the entire campus as part of our safety initiative
  • Offer significant tuition assistance for families experiencing job losses due to COVID-19.
