Home for Midland K-12
The MAA Foundation (MAAF)is an independent functioning body that sponsors capital improvements and other projects that support Midlandʼs goals of providing high quality, Christian education. As a separate functioning board, the Foundation can take a holistic and independent approach to help on projects that will improve the capacity to deliver Christian education and achieve higher standards of scholastic recognition for the school.
The MAAF is made up of donor funds managed locally through the National Christian Foundation-Heartland Division. Donations made to the Foundation are tax deductible.
Recent projects include updating and remodeling the MAA Kitchen and building a new safe and fun playground our children enjoy daily. The Foundation has committed to raising $30K towards the roof replacement capital campaign. The 2017 Mustang Stampede Golf Tournament raised $15K toward this effort.
The Foundation is also excited to be exploring the feasibility of building a solar farm to help the school go green and reduce its number 2 expense - utilities. If you would be interested in serving on the Foundation board or volunteering with other activities, call or text Jeff Reimche, MAAF Board Chairperson at (816) 305-7914.
Kitchen Remodeling 2013
Midland’s kitchen has been used to serve meals to 50-75 students on a daily basis for the past 30 years. It has also been used for concessions, banquets, and school and church events where 200-300 people have been served.
And the kitchen is finally wearing out. The stove tops and ovens partially work, the plumbing under the sinks is failing, storage cabinets are insufficient and showing their age, and the entire kitchen is in need of a major renovation.
So this summer, the Midland Foundation has stepped up to the plate to fund a major renovation that will bring us up to commercial standards, and to meet our kitchen needs for the next 40 years. The kitchen renovation includes upgrading the area from floor to ceiling and replacing major appliances. Some of the improvements include:
- new floor covering
- removing and replacing the grease trap
- cleaning and painting the walls
- replacing the ceiling tiles and light fixtures
- replacing existing cabinets with stainless steel lockable cabinets
- two new induction ranges
- adding a full height warming, holding cabinet,
- adding hot and cold wells for serving
- a new ice maker with a 350 lb. capacity
- additional storage shelves
- stackable washer & dryer unit
- two commercial grade microwave ovens
- replacing old plumbing and wiring
- upgrading the sinks and faucets
We will continue to use the existing commercial grade refrigerator and freezer. In the cafeteria area we are installing awnings over the serving window and tray return with school colors and logo and adding four commercial grade microwave ovens for student use.
The Midland Adventist Academy Foundation exists to support the mission of Midland Adventist Academy by raising funds and securing gifts from private donors to make capital improvements to the facilities and educational program. Income from fund raising events such as the annual Mustang Stampede Golf Tournament makes projects like this possible. Past MAA Foundation projects include providing a computer lab for student use, repairing and replacing air conditioning units, and installing a parking lot.
One Million Dollar Matching Campaign
Midland's Foundation has recently secured a $1 million matching commitment to launch a potential endowment campaign. For every dollar MAAF raises on its own for an endowment campaign, it will receive a matching dollar, up to $1 million. As a result, Midland Adventist Academy and the Midland Adventist Academy Foundation need your input.
MAA and MAAF leaders are exploring how best to maximize these developments. Before they make any major decisions, they would like to hear from you. They have commissioned a feasibility study to 1) capture your input, 2) assess interest in MAAF and its goals, and 3) determine levels of financial support for a potential endowment campaign.
If you haven't taken the opportunity yet, please go to our Feasability Study page to complete a short survey. This survey is designed to capture information about our knowledge and opinions of Midland, and how the school should best approach this fund raising opportunity. This is not a survey that is asking for a donation, and your input is helpful even if you don't know Midland Academy well. Would you please take 10 minutes to complete this confidential survey?
Your open and honest opinion is very important to us in this process. All feedback will be kept confidential. Please participate! In addition to our gratitude, participants over the age of 25 will receive a gift certificate for a homemade lunch at Midland Adventist Academy.
A New Roof in Place
Thanks to the roof workers and the MAA Foundation. Midland has a new, much-needed roof sealant in place. Here are a couple of pictures, and thanks for all your hard work!
Golfing for Midland - 2010
Forty-two golfers, including seven Midland students, participated in the Second Annual Mustang Stampede at The National, a private course designed by Kansas City's Tom Watson. Golf Digest magazine has recognized this as a Top 100 course, so all those on the links enjoyed a great golfing experience! Hosted by the Midland Adventist Academy Foundation, this year's event showed an increase in participation of over 30% from the inaugural event.
Congrats go to the Paul Kaiser team who won the Stampede this year after shooting a 62 out on the greens. Winners in the individual contests are as follows:
Closest to the Pin - Jon Fisher
Long Drive - Nate Truelson
Longest Putt - Jeff Prusia
Midland students who enjoyed an afternoon playing golf included Dylan Hircock (2nd grade), Garret Whitson (8th), Josh Daif (8th), Johnny Edwards (9th), Brett Trana (9th), Kristi Tucker (9th), and Katie Tucker (10th). Midland teacher Greg Hallock also participated in the event. Thanks to the Midland Foundation for another fund-raising opportunity to benefit Midland and our students.
Parking Lot ProgressThe makeover of Midland's parking lot was completed in August 2010, thanks to the Midland Foundation. The old curbing has been removed and replaced by new cement curbs. Fresh asphalt was laid down, and striping applied in late August.
Mustang Stampede 1st Annual Golf Classic
Midland's Foundation celebrated September 25, 2009 as the date of the first annual Mustang Stampede Golf Classic, held at the Falcon Ridge Golf Course.
A total of 32 golfers participated in the scramble, cleared roughly $20,000 towards a new parking lot. We want to express a big thank you to each person who participated! Your hard work and generous donations helped pave the way for a new parking lot at Midland Adventist Academy (see above).
For those who sponsored a hole, we have recognized your donation by displaying your company's name and address here on the Foundation's page. For more information, contact Cary DeCamp.
