The VMS Annual Fund supports our school’s operations with funding for Enhancements to Classrooms, Teacher Professional Development, Technology Advancement, Tuition Assistance and the Edible Schoolyard. All of these initiatives are fundamental to our programs and therefore are now part of our operating budget.
“Mind the Gap”
Tuition and fees provide most of our operating revenue, yet 6% of our budgeted income is needed from fundraising. The more successful we are at building a strong Annual Fund, the more we can strengthen our programs. Ideally we would not only fill the 6% funding gap, but also grow the allocated dollars that are contributed to all of our initiatives and programs. Generous donations have made a huge difference in recent years. Click here for more info.
It all adds up!
Last year 100% of our Board, teachers and staff participated! We ask that all past and present families follow their lead. Your generous participation is very important. Each family’s situation is different, so gifts range from $10 to $10,000. Consider the monthly option to increase your gift. Every gift is important and is deeply appreciated. Our teachers and administrators are committed to working hard throughout the year making Valley Montessori School the best school it can possibly be. Your gifts are essential in helping us enrich our programs and the experiences we are able to offer the children
Your Annual Fund Participation is Essential!
Note: Annual Fund gifts are tax-deductable and many employers provide matching funding opportunities that could double your gift. Strong participation in our Annual Fund may encourage grantors to support VMS as well.
