Ligia Arias and Diego Alcazar, Parents ’19: why we give

October 31, 2017 | Abby Liu

We give to the Mustard Seed Fund because in our own lives, education has been such a powerful and positive influence. There’s nothing more important that we can give to our kids. We want other children and their families to benefit from a Mustard Seed education as much as ours do.

We give because Mustard Seed provides a high level of education and also a strong foundation of values. Solidarity, service, and acceptance are more than words at this school. They’re actions.

We give because Mustard Seed’s mission means opportunity and inclusion. A holistic approach to learning. Respect for others. A diverse and tolerant environment. This opportunity is extended to everybody, regardless of creed, ethnicity, or economic background.

We often say that children are the future. MSS provides the knowledge and tools so that students can build a better future for themselves and their families. More than that, contribute in a positive way to their communities.

We have all at times benefitted from the generosity of others in one way or another. We must recognize how lucky we are and contribute in any way we can, whether by donating our resources, volunteering, or mentoring.

We give so that others will have a great start in life too.
