Portola’s Highly Gifted Magnet is the only middle school program in the Los Angeles Unified School District exclusively dedicated to the education of highly gifted students, and one of the few such programs -- public or private -- across the United States. MPA supports the magnet and its students with both monetary donations and volunteer assistance. While membership in MPA is limited to families with children enrolled in the program, individuals, companies and organizations can also help ensure that the magnet’s diverse student population continues to thrive.

If you would like to support the Highly Gifted Magnet and its students, you can:

  • Contribute to our Annual Fund Drive
  • Volunteer for one of MPA’s activity committees, such as the newsletter and enrichment trips
  • Participate in other fundraising activities, such as our monthly lunches and potluck dinner
  • Come to MPA meetings!

Companies or organizations interested in making either monetary or in-kind donations should contact Terri Mouton at b.t.mouton@sbcglobal.net or any member of the Board of Directors.
