Annual Fund

Give, give, give. It seems that’s all you ever from hear from the Development Office. But listen again; Give Wonder. Give Excitement. Give Adventure. Delight. Amazement. Beauty. Joy.

I could go on, but you get the idea. Our amazing school already provides so much wonder, excitement, adventure, etc. that it is sometimes hard to imagine what else we would want to add. But the world that our children inhabit is changing so fast, with so many wonderful new ideas, new devices, new approaches, that we are often hard-pressed to keep up.

Your gift to the Annual Fund, because it is unrestricted, allows our school to be more nimble, more able to accommodate new ideas about Montessori, more able to enhance your child’s world in so many ways that it boggles the mind.

The Annual Fund drive for last year, 2017-18, provided funds for upgrades and changes at a number of levels throughout the school. The IT systems have been improved, the tuition assistance fund has been enlarged, and staff members have participated in professional training that makes itself felt every day in the classrooms. Maintenance across the campus has been improved, with new carpets, fresh paint, and gleaming floors all over the place. Of course, the day-to-day maintenance necessities are a part of the school’s annual budget, but funds from the Annual Fund have allowed just that little bit of “extra” that makes our physical plant so outstanding, and it has allowed our faculty and staff to add those special touches that make our curriculum so special.

Please consider a contribution to the Annual Fund this year. You can make a pledge, to be paid out over the course of the year, or you can arrange a recurring payment plan through your own bank. You can pay online with a credit card, or you can give us the card number and we can process the charge. You can write a check, donate stock, or even make your contribution with cash!
