Your Donation Makes a Difference!

While the M-A Athletic Department does receive some funding from the district, it's not nearly enough to cover the costs of sustaining and improving the M-A athletic program.


Based on the current financial projection, the Athletic Department is facing a $200,000 shortfall in funding to support its 2017-18 programs.
