MCPS needs your help to raise funds to purchase backpacks filled with school supplies for students in need.  This is the sixth year for the Give BACKpacks initiative, which is sponsored by the Partnerships Unit in collaboration with the MCPS Educational Foundation, Inc.  During the 2017-2018 campaign, 18,534 backpacks were provided to 82 schools and the International Admissions and Enrollment Office.


A $10 donation will provide a new backpack filled with school supplies to a student in need.  Consider donating at the following giving levels to reach more students:  $300, $1,500, $6,500, $25,000 or $50,000.  You can direct your donation to a school of your choice through the campaign.  Visit to make a donation or to learn more about the campaign.  If you have any questions, please contact the MCPS Partnerships Unit, at 301-217-5370.
