Invest in IB

The “Invest in IB” Campaign is our annual fundraising drive in support of the MTF mission of financial support, service and advocacy of the IB Programme.   Like most IB Programmes in Alabama, the county provides only essential funding for faculty positions.  Annual dues of $10,000 to the IB  Organization in Switzerland have been underwritten for several years thanks to  Baldwin County’s  State Senator Trip Pittman. Required student fees, professional development and training as well as additional student enrichment fall to parent and public support.   The IB diploma is an expensive commitment for these students - with $500 annual fees both their Junior and Senior year.   Of our annual fundraising, several thousand dollars underwrite these fees for qualifying students representing financial need. In addition, we provide the Morgan Thompson Scholarship to a graduating senior.
