Because Morrison Academy is a private institution and does not receive public funding or church/mission subsidies, fundraising is critical to providing the best education possible for our students. Through charitable support, Morrison is able to strengthen its programs and facilities to levels that go beyond what can be funded by tuition alone. In the past, alumni, parents, and friends of Morrison Academy have also responded generously to a variety of fundraising programs including campus Annual Fund drives, annual student mission trips, specific need-based initiatives and periodic Capital Campaign drives.
Another opportunity to help Morrison achieve its purpose is to give to Morrison’s scholarship funds. Donations given to the Robert Morrison Scholarship fund are used to assist families committed to Christ’s Great Commission who otherwise would not be able to attend Morrison. The Sharon McGill Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2018 in honor of Sharon McGill who served as a dorm parent for 19 years. Scholarships for dorm program costs are granted to students who would otherwise not be able to attend Morrison.
As a Christ-following community, we also recognize that we are called to give to others because of the blessings we have received through our relationship with Jesus Christ. In response, we desire to give to individuals and organizations that are in need. One example is the annual Christmas Project. On each campus, a committee helps to identify a charitable organization with financial need and the community comes together to raise money. Students participate alongside staff and parents by creatively raising support through chores, bake sales and various other methods. When individuals and families experience significant personal need, Morrison desires to show practical support through the establishment of benevolence funds to help reduce the burden of any expenses that may be incurred.
Gifts made to Morrison Academy are tax-deductible in both the United States and Taiwan. The school is registered as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) in the US.
