The Garner Moore Family Challenge doubles your gift!

In honor of Miami Country Day School’s 75th Anniversary year, on April 3, 2014, the Garner and Moore families announced an increase to their original commitment of $500,000 for a total of $1 million in support of building a Center for the Arts. The additional $500,000 committed is a 1:1 Challenge Gift, and the Garner Moore Family Challenge will match dollar for dollar each additional new commitment made since April 3 to the Campaign for the Arts, up to $500,000. Increases to current pledges qualify for the Match; however, payments made on existing pledges do not qualify.

A special thank you to the Garner and Moore families for their leadership gift and support of a Center for the Arts at Miami Country Day School. Last year at the 75th Anniversary celebration, The Garner Foundation was recognized as one of the inaugural members of the 1938 Society that acknowledges benefactors whose cumulative monetary gifts or irrevocable gifts to Miami Country Day have reached $1 million and above. There has been a member of the Garner or Moore families involved in Country Day for over 60 years. It’s impossible to walk across the Country Day campus and not see the imprint of the Garner and Moore families somewhere. There is hardly a building on our campus that they have not been a part of, sharing their time and energy planning or offering generous financial support. The Garner and Moore families illustrate a true culture of philanthropy, and still today, the family continues to be very involved in the life of our school giving generously and joyfully. The Country Day campus would not be what it is today were it not for this family. Fittingly, it was announced at the celebration in April that in recognition of the Garner and Moore families’ generous spirit and dedication to Miami Country Day, the South campus will be known as The Garner Campus.

Thank you for your consideration of accepting and participating in this important challenge that will benefit students, teachers, staff, and the community.
