In honor of Giving Tuesday this year (Nov. 27), Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match donations a total of up to $7 million to U.S. nonprofits on Facebook.

As a supporter of MPE, we need your help!

How to help on Giving Tuesday

Please donate ONLY on Nov. 27 (Giving Tuesday) to MPE via Facebook, as close to 7 a.m. Central time as possible. This gives us the best chance of getting the matched donations that are available.

You can donate via Facebook in three ways:

  1. Go to our Facebook page and donate through our cover photo.
  2. Donate through our Facebook page fundraiser.
  3. Create your own Facebook fundraiser for MPE and invite your friends to join you!


We’ll direct all donations to our scholarship fund, which provides MPE memberships (valued at $50 and up) to families in severe economic need.

Recently we’ve received more requests for our scholarship fund as an increasing number of KC-area homeschoolers face financial challenges.

These scholarships benefit homeschoolers like Shawna Wright, who lost her husband to cancer during her homeschool journey.

Shawna says the scholarship helped the family cope not only financially, but also in “the feeling of belonging, being wanted, being part of something supportive that was bigger than just our family.”

To those who donated to her scholarship, Shawna says,

“May God richly bless each of you for your gracious generosity to those of us who have faced trying and sometimes devastating circumstances! Your gift makes a real and lasting difference in our lives.”

Other ways to help

  • Support MPE through AmazonSmile.

Did you know you can help other homeschool families through your holiday shopping? We’re registered on Amazon Smile, where Amazon donates a percentage of the price of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice!

  • Box Tops for homeschoolers.

The popular Box Tops program supports not only schools, but also certain homeschool organizations such as MPE! Next time you buy something with a Box Top coupon on it, start a collection.

You may be amazed at the amount of Box Tops you can gather before you bring them to our next homeschool conference or other upcoming event.


Thanks in advance for your support!
