2nd Century Fund

Make a gift to the 2nd Century Annual Fund and support the mission of Eastern Mennonite School to join home and church in calling students to faith in Jesus Christ, academic excellence, personal integrity and compassionate service in the world. You can also support students through Christmas Fund Drive.

Generous contributions from parents, grandparents, friends, and alumni have an immediate and tangible impact on our learning community. The 2nd Century Fund touches every aspect of the school, from flexible tuition to professional development, technology to the arts, athletics, musical programs, and college and career counseling.

Why do you give?

"We continue to give because we want other students to have the same experience at EMS that our son did."
