At a Glance

MESF holds two major fundraisers each school year: the Patron Program in the fall, and the Murdock Mustang Raffle in the spring. These two events fund the majority of our budget. To help meet our full operating budget, we also sell Birthday Messages on the new electronic marquee as well as student artwork at grade level Art Shows.

Patron Program

Your gift to the MESF Patron Program will support a year full of Science, Technology, The Leader in Me, and much more at Murdock Elementary. MESF asks for a donation of $125 per family; however every gift will have a powerful impact on Murdock students, so please give as you are able. Our ultimate goal is for every Murdock family to make an investment in our students. Please make your donation online here, or you can print out and complete the Patron Program Giving Form and send it in with your child or deliver to the front office. Your gift will mean a more enriched education for every Murdock student! Questions?

If you or another family member or friend would like to make a general donation, you can send in a check to school with your child, or you can mail it to:

MESF c/o Murdock Elementary School 
2320 Murdock Road 
Marietta GA 30062

All donations to MESF are tax deductible. MESF is a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) Corporation. Thank you for your support.

Employer Matching

The Murdock Elementary School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax deductible foundation. This means your donation to the foundation is 100% tax deductible. In addition to your generous giving, you can also help MESF meet its fundraising goals by checking to see if your employer will match your generous giving. Many employers will match eligible contributions made by employees and/or spouses. Your donation to the Foundation could even be doubled or tripled! See if your employer will match your donation using Double the Donation. We urge you to take the necessary steps to secure a match – 100% will go right back to Murdock students and staff!

We have partnered with Double the Donation to make the process quick and easy – no more than 5 minutes of your time! Simply type in your company name to get started. Every program is different, so please contact your Human Resources department if your company isn’t found in Double the Donation. If needed, access our Tax Determination Letter here. If you have any questions about this process or are unsure if your company will match, please contact us.

Mustang Raffle

Each spring for 2 weeks, MESF sponsors the Mustang Raffle. This hugely successful fundraiser is designed to allow Murdock families to raise dollars by selling tickets to friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc. Murdock students are eligible for lots of fun prizes, such as: Sellers Club movie night, sling bags, treasure box goodies, and more! The ticket purchaser will have a chance to win one of three exciting prizes. Past prizes have included: Atlanta Braves family package, iPad, $1,000 cash. Expenses are kept low through donations and there is little to no classroom interruption.

If you are interested in Raffle sponsorship/partnership opportunities, please contact us.
