Corporate Sponsorship

Dear Neighbor,

For decades, Myers Park High School has been a vibrant education institution in Charlotte. Scores of amazing teachers have challenged and inspired students to excel in academics, arts, and athletics. Myers Park graduates have achieved success in every sphere. 

However, Myers Park high school is also home for nearly 1000 students who do not have the adequate resources for success. They face poverty, homelessness, or other incredible social challenges.  Without additional support, many would fail to graduate. The Myers Park High School Foundation tackles this problem "head-on" with its mission to enhance the educational experience of every Myers Park student by expanding opportunities, addressing unmet needs, and funding innovation. The Foundation currently provides funding to support two full-time coordinators from Communities in Schools who work daily with some of the most critically underserved students at Myers Park. Additional programs that the Foundation supports include:

  • Mustang Matters: An after-school program that provides academic and enrichment support to students with scholastic, social and/or emotional needs. 
  • AVID Support: The Advancement Via Individual Determination program ("AVID") provides resources for students taking AP classes for the first time. With the Foundation's support, AVID students have access to tutors, meaningful field trips and well-regarded speakers.
  • E2D Partnership: An initiative to ensure all students have access to at-home technology.
The success of these programs allows more students to finish high school and attend college, join the workforce, or volunteer for our nation's military. 

 

Our Current Need:

The Foundation's mission has never been more important due to the lingering effects the global pandemic has had on students, their families, and our local communities. Our partnership with Charlotte/Mecklenburg businesses is critical and we are asking for your support for 2022.  By providing annual support to the MPHS Foundation, your company's commitment to the youth in our community will be recognized at all our events and public channels, such as: 
  • Art for the Park is the signature fundraising event for the MPHS Foundation, and we are thrilled about our planned in-person event on March 18th, 2022, at the Bojangles Entertainment Complex. This event brings MPHS parents, alumni, and staff together to enjoy food and music while bidding on artwork created by students and local artists.
  • The Foundation's annual campus luncheon is open to the local community and alumni. At the luncheon, we celebrate the accomplishments of students who have participated in programs funded by the Foundation and acknowledge the tremendous effort of the staff and community partners who have worked tirelessly on behalf of the students.
  • The Foundation has an extensive online presence and is active across multiple social media channels. In addition to being recognized at our signature events, our sponsors are featured throughout the year across all our digital platforms - informing students, families and alumni of the role individual companies play in addressing critical needs.

We know you have many opportunities to support Charlotte and, our hope is that you see the MPHS Foundation's program as a high-impact way to transform the lives of students in our community. Please consider one of the four sponsorship levels that are outlined below and thank you in advance for your commitment to the MPHS Foundation.
