GIVE MERIT. Build a Great School.
While Memphis Merit Academy Charter School will operate primarily on public funding, the success of Memphis Merit Academy, particularly in our start-up and founding years, depends heavily on the backing of committed, passionate donors. Individuals who believe that every child can learn at a high level when given a rigorous curriculum, character education and the supports to excel.
Even with per-pupil funding from state and federal sources, there is a short fall between this revenue stream and the cost to educate a Memphis Merit Academy student, specifically relating to additional technology needs, enrichment opportunities, and general start-up operational costs.
Note: Memphis Merit Academy, Inc. is an exempt organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code. For your reference, our EIN is 82-2828471.
