Get Involved

As an independently funded school with not-for-profit charity status, we rely on gifts from our families, friends and community partners. Whether you volunteer at a school event, share your expertise in the classroom or donate to our Annual Appeal, each gift supports something unique in London: traditional Montessori education. We are grateful for each and every gift, no matter what size it is or shape it comes in.

Thank you to the individuals and corporations that help Montessori Academy of London achieve our fundraising goals each year.

Why Give

“Within the child lies the fate of the future” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori

There is no greater resource to invest in, that will impact our world greater, than a child’s education. Due to lack of government funding for independent schools, ever-increasing costs, and regulations affecting our programs, we must diversify our revenue sources through increased fund development.

Our school needs the support of our families, the business community, foundations and other charitable organizations to address the growing gap between tuition and the expense of delivering high-quality, traditional Montessori education to families in and around London.

Your investment in our school helps to ensure future families can provide their children something special – an education that promotes academic excellence and prepares children and young adults to engage in the world as active citizens and successful leaders.

How you can give

1. SUPPORT OUR FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES

Tuition covers more than 95% of the school’s day-to-day operational expenses. However, we need your support to continue to invest in program enhancements, faculty development, learning environments and facilities, and other strategic initiatives to give our students the best possible education.

How your gifts are used

Donations and gifts made to the school support the priorities outlined in our Strategic Plan:

2. CHARITABLE GIVING

Montessori Academy participates in a charitable giving program that encourages the students to support local charities (Children’s Health Foundation, London Food Bank, Merrymount Children’s Centre) and international organizations (ME to WE) that directly support children. Every effort is made to make these activities meaningful, educational, and to develop a sense of responsibility and appreciation on the part of the student.

4. VOLUNTEER AT THE SCHOOL

We are truly grateful for the time, energy and enthusiasm that our Parent Volunteers give as active members of Montessori Academy. Gifts of your time and expertise is invaluable to our students – and entire school community. Learn more about how you can volunteer at our Volunteer Opportunities page.

Every donation gives the gift of Education Choice. Your generous gift ensures our school remains financially accessible to families who want to give their children an authentic Montessori education.
