Students are counting on you.

Your donations make up about 25% of Mount Ellis Academy operating budget, providing support for the core programs that inspire students to achieve more, strive more, learn more, and ultimately, act more for the good of all.

The Mount Ellis Academy community prepares students intellectually, emotionally, and ethically to thrive in a college setting and beyond. We provide students with the life-long purpose of active participation in global citizenship. Thank you for making Mount Ellis Academy a place where students are inspired.

You unrestricted donation to the general fund allows us to apply your donation to exactly what we need today.

Student Sponsorships

Sometimes when all financial help options are exhausted, a student may need some additional help to make MEA possible. If you wish to donate to specific MEA student, we will apply your donation directly to the named student's account. We'll ask you to specifiy the name of the student you wish to sponsor in the next step. Please note that student sponsorships are NOT tax deductible.

Bear Canyon Ski Area Endowment Fund

The Bear Canyon Ski Area Endowment Fund provides a way to address the financial needs before they become problematic.  A fully-funded $300,000 endowment will pay the current annual lease; more will facilitate ski hill maintenance and facility upkeep. Just 300 people willing to pledge $1,000 over the next three years will fund the endowment, but every gift is important and appreciated. The math is easy and so is donating.
