Annual Fund

Dr. Maria Montessori

We, who work for a single goal, are, as it were, the members of the same person. Those who come after us will attain further goals because there were those who believed and worked before them.
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, Austin Montessori School is dedicated to providing exceptional educational experiences in these new and challenging circumstances. As a non-profit organization, we set our tuition and fees to match operating expenses each year, making these additional funds crucial to not only help build the future but also help fund:
  • Outdoor learning environments
  • Staff professional development
  • Montessori classroom materials
  • Financial aid
  • Essential PPE equipment and sanitation/cleaning services
 
Giving Levels:
Giving at the 'Golden' levels includes an invitation to a donor event in the spring and a special gift. Giving Levels can be viewed here.

Annual Fund Update:

Annual Fund 2021 has now concluded. We finished the drive with:

94% Parent Participation
100% Staff & Board Participation
$214,393.00 Raised

While this campaign has concluded, we will continue to accept charitable gifts. If you did not participate by the deadline and still wish to, we will still count you in our totals. If you have grandparents, relatives, and friends interested in supporting the school, or a company that has a matching gift program, we will happily accept those gifts. The money raised will go so far in supporting our operational budget and contributing to the future of Austin Montessori School.
