Grad Night 2020 – “Carry On” the Tradition!

The MHS Alumni Jackrabbits Foundation is combining efforts with parents of Mesa High graduating seniors and the Mesa High Community as a whole to get Grad Night 2020 at Golfland/Sunsplash on the calendar and reserved for next May in order to carry on the tradition of providing a fun and safe post-grad event for students at a cost they can afford! There is a sizeable cost associated with reserving this venue – as well as a due date deadline – and the Jackrabbits Foundation will act as the host for any donations intended for this purpose.

The following letter explains the purpose of the Jackrabbits Foundation and includes directions for making donations of any kind toward Mesa High Grad Night 2020. Here’s your chance to get involved!

Dear Parents of Graduating Seniors:

Thank you for your interest in collaborating with the MHS Alumni Jackrabbits Foundation for the purpose of raising funds for Mesa High. We are an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with federal tax-exempt status dedicated to helping promote and facilitate financial support for Mesa High school-sponsored and -related groups and activities. All monetary donations to the Jackrabbits Foundation are tax-deductible and go directly to student body groups and activities.

Grad Night 2020 certainly qualifies as such an activity and we are pleased to serve as the host for the collection of funds for the $2,295.00 deposit (due Sept. 1, 2019) to reserve Golfland/SunSplash for the May 2020 graduates. This Grad Night 2020 event will definitely benefit the students—providing a fun and safe place for them to celebrate together after graduation. The Jackrabbits Foundation involvement with the collection of funds also assists in subsidizing the cost of student tickets—making it more affordable for the students themselves.

Anyone and everyone in the Mesa High community is welcome to make a tax-deductible donation through the Jackrabbits Foundation for this event! Just go to to get instructions on how to donate with a credit/debit card, PayPal, and/or Venmo. On the homepage there is a DONATE button in the header: just click the donate button and choose your method of payment! In the payment process, you will be given the option to note that your donation is for “Grad Night 2020”—so be sure to specify that. We can also accept your donations by cash, check, or money order. You will receive a receipt for any form of contribution you make.

We hope you’ll take a moment to look at the website and consider signing up to become a member of the Jackrabbits Foundation, as well! And then help us by spreading the word about our Foundation and the great opportunity it provides – especially for alumni – to help keep Mesa High School strong and make a difference for good in the lives of its students of today!
Thank you for your involvement and valuable support!
