Madeira announces All the Difference: The Campaign for Madeira

May 2, 2017

Five years ago, Madeira began to lay the groundwork for the most ambitious fundraising initiative in our history. We identified five strategic funding priorities to strengthen Madeira’s academic foundations and further our tradition of excellence.

These priorities are: 

  • Enhancing residential and campus life
  • Funding an unrivaled new academic Center for Innovation and Collaborative Learning – to enhance our expanding STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) curriculum
  • Endowing Co-Curriculum to continue our history of real-world learning opportunities
  • Improving our athletic offering
  • Growing the Madeira Fund  

The quiet phase of the Campaign kicked off with a $10 million challenge gift—the largest gift ever made to Madeira. These funds enabled us to renovate Main and East dorms as well as Main Terrace. 

We then received a second challenge gift of $3 million, which allowed us to complete renovations to West Dorm and the hardscaping and landscaping of the Oval. These contributions brought to the Campaign early, tangible achievements that helped to attract additional support. Each gift has inspired the next.  We have raised  $54 million thus far towards our goal of $85 million.  

We are proud to kick-off the public phase of our Campaign. All the Difference will reaffirm the importance of an all-girls education, strengthen the impact of Madeira, and ensure that nothing is off limits to a Madeira girl. This campaign affirms Madeira’s commitment to launching women who change the world.
