Christmas Fund Drive

The 2021-22 Student Fund Dive will launch Nov. 23!

During last year's drive, generous donors made 600+ gifts totaling over $165,000! Those dollars go directly to faculty and staff support, financial aid, and mission-supporting efforts. We are so grateful for donor support!

Students have led a fund drive at Christmas time for EMS since 1948. Funds raised during this drive are key to helping us make an EMS experience possible for more students. Gifts support the 2nd Century Fund, as we trek into our 105th year!

We welcome your support through:

  • gifts to the Christmas Fund Drive,
  • prayer,
  • encouragement of our staff and students,

Students share how gifts help shape their EMS experience.

Personal Giving Pages

Students and teachers have the opportunity to create personal giving pages  during the drive. They allow participants to invite supporters to give online directly towards an individual's goal. This creates new options for all participants since traditional letter-writing and phonathons are less effective than in the past for some people.

Why did you give?

"We continue to give because we want other students to have the same experience at EMS that our son did."
Mother of '93 alum.

My kids are so happy to be attending EMS! They love being able to be with their friends. It makes a big different for them to have interactive learning which gives them a sense of community and support." -Melinda, 6th and 9th grade parent.
