Annual Giving & Fundraising
Annual Giving is the foundation of MSW’s fundraising efforts.  Our school relies on this ongoing philanthropic support which:

Similar to other independent schools, tuition accounts for 95% of the cost of educating a child in our Montessori program.  Gifts to the Annual Giving Fund close the gap and demonstrate commitment to preparing current and future MSW students to achieve great things.

Gifts to the Annual Giving Fund are vital in continuing to provide a stellar Montessori education. Donations are welcome at any time throughout the academic year as well as during event-specific campaigns such as the Winter Giving Tree and the SuperHero 5K Run & Kids' Fun Run~Walk. Gifts to MSW’s Annual Giving Fund are unrestricted. 

Each year brings its own particular needs and opportunities.  We understand that you are approached for support from many non-profit organizations and it is important to us that you feel confident that we are good stewards of your generosity.    


The Impact of Your Annual Gift
 
Current students at MSW reap the benefits of those who have contributed to Annual Giving and fundraising efforts in the last decade.  The UTZ  Field House, new computers, Primary playground, Peace Garden, play equipment upgrades, new classroom materials, resident artist programs, and the addition of enrichment curricula have provided our students experiential learning both in and outside of the classroom. 

Your investment also helps to provide professional development for our MSW staff. Staying on top of the latest research in child development and offerings for the Montessori classroom positions us to enhance the learning experience of our students.   

Over the years our staff has attended a myriad of workshops, which are always energizing and educational.  Every year brings something different to the classrooms -- whether it is a child with a learning difference or new information on incorporating STEM education into the classroom.  Workshops help us stay on top of current research and ideas to continue providing a rich environment for exploration.

 So we thank you for your generosity; it gives the gift of a Montessori education and touches the lives of each student who passes through our doors.

Every gift, no matter the amount, is important in helping us provide valuable resources to our students and staff.  The Montessori School of Westminster is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization; therefore, all donations to the Annual Fund are tax deductible.  Gifts are gladly accepted at any time of year.  Use this button to make your tax-deductible gift today.
