Montessori School Giving Philosophy
The Development effort at The Montessori School blends the essential work of raising funds for our school with a philosophy that each family's active participation in the life and health of the school creates a vital community. Donation of time and talent demonstrates to the children, the adults' support of their school and creates meaningful, relationships between families and the school.
The combination of annual giving, fundraising events and income from the investment of our endowment, bridge the financial gap that exists between tuition revenue and operating expense. We create the gap deliberately due to our commitment to moderate tuition and robust tuition assistance.
For over 25 years, our Spring Auction has been our largest fundraising and social event, with nearly 100% participation by parents and staff alike. It is produced through extensive volunteer effort and every family is encouraged to participate and attend.
We are a school that recognizes and highly values collaborative work between parents and staff. As we work together to build a community that is strong philosophically, financially and pedagogically, we rely on the many and varied contributions of our Montessori parents, alumni and friends.
Giving online is quick, simple and secure. We thank you for your support!
