Standing on the cornerstone of our 34 year history, we are building a future to ensure Countryside Montessori School is the first choice for families who value a Montessori curriculum. We are a special community – a faithful family.

We know that Countryside needs our loyalty and support. When you give to Countryside Montessori School you help enrich our classrooms, empower our faculty and enhance our facilities. We are sincerely grateful to our many donors: parents, grandparents, community members, faculty, staff, alumni and others who understand and appreciate the impact Countryside Montessori School is making in the Charlotte community and beyond.

The One Fund campaign is Countryside Montessori School’s annual fundraising campaign. It is the foundation for the school’s sustainable fundraising activities. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating students in independent schools such as Countryside. The annual fund provides the School with the essential operating dollars that bridge the gap between our tuition income and the full cost of providing a quality education for our students.
Fundraising events are a great way to build relationships with our parents, alumni and community members. The Annual Gala and Fine Arts Festival help support the general operating funds of the School.

If you have made provisions for a planned gift, please make us aware so that we may acknowledge your generosity.
