Culture of Giving at Countryside
Countryside Montessori School prides itself on its family-friendly culture. Families take care of one another. In 2008 we created The One Fund to provide annual operating support to all levels within the school. Gifts to the One Fund touch the lives of Countryside students each and every day through three main areas: Learning Outside the Classroom, Curriculum Enrichment and Continuing Education for Educators.
- 100% of our faculty and staff donate to The One Fund.
- 100% of our Board of Directors donate to The One Fund
- We'd like to see 100% of our parents donate to The One Fund. What can you give this year? $100 (Bronze) ... $250 (Silver) ... $500 (Gold) ... $1,000 (Platninum)
Donations can be made online or by returning the donation form to any campus
The Legacy Campaign
is earmarked for the completion of a 17,500 square foot Arts & Athletic Center
and the build out of the second floor at the Middle/High School campus. Imagine a school-wide drama festival held on our Fine Arts stage or hosting the Independent School’s division tournaments in our Athletic Center. With your help these dreams can become reality for our current students.
Become a Legacy Keeper: Join the Countryside families who have pledged $1,000 a year to the Legacy Campaign. These families are helping us keep the dream alive for our Arts & Athletic Center. Their names are proudly displayed in our Mallard Creek gymnasium as an encouragement and reminder to the greater Countryside community that we need an Arts & Athletic Center on our Johnston-Oehler campus. You can become a Legacy Keeper, too! With a monthly gift of $84.00 you can help us keep our Legacy alive.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Your gift to Countryside may be doubled if your employer offers a matching gifts program. Please check with the human resources department at your organization for details.

We’re Counting On Your Continued Support
It takes more than tuition to run a school. Tuition and participation fees at Countryside Montessori School (and most independent schools) cover 96% of the total cost of running the school. We rely on you and your contributions to the One Fund and the Legacy Campaign to make up the final 4%. Every donation makes a difference.
