Matching Gift Campaign

Our Board of Governors has generously offered to match any donations made between now and June 24, up to a maximum of $6,000 combined. To celebrate the end of the school year, we are requesting you make a donation to our Endowment Fund, which offers a long-term benefit to the school’s Financial Support program. This year alone, the Financial Support program has helped 23 students continue their Montessori journey.
