Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is Montessori Family School’s highest fundraising priority each year, and it is conducted during the first few months of the school year. The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating children in our Montessori classrooms. For that reason, a successful Annual Fund is critical to a successful academic year and to the ongoing vibrancy of our school.

This year, the Annual Fund runs from September to November 15th, which is National Philanthropy Day. During this time, we ask the families of current students, faculty and staff, members of the Board of Directors, our alumni, and friends to support the school by making a donation during the Annual Fund.

Each year we aim for 100% participation from all constituencies of the school in the Annual Fund. Your gift will support our extraordinary teachers, the acquisition of vital curricular resources and classroom materials, our extraordinary music and art programs, and our ability to offer more financial aid to support Montessori education in our community.
