Giving to Countryside
Giving to Countryside Montessori School offers students the educational experience they deserve. Most contributors are parents, grandparents, community members, faculty and staff, alumni and others who understand and appreciate the importance of making available quality educational opportunities. In order for us to keep tuition increases to a minimum, several options for giving are available. All levels of support are necessary to expand the possiblities for our students.
THE ONE FUND
The One Fund campaign is Countryside Montessori School’s annual fundraising campaign. It is the foundation for the school’s sustainable fundraising activities.Experience indicates that it is difficult to consistently secure larger gifts for special projects and capital purposes or to build an endowment without a strong annual fund that has widespread and generous support for the total constituency of the school. 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.
THE LEGACY CAMPAIGN
The goal of the Legacy Campaign is to raise $1 million to support the 5-Year Strategic Plan and the building of the Arts & Athletic Center for the entire school system. The Center will accomodate a state-of-the-art gymnasium, performance stage, cafeteria, office space, and locker rooms.
Fundraising events are a great way to build relationships with our parents, alumni and community members. The Gala Auction and Golf Outing help support the general operating funds and scholarships of the School.
