Why Give to Arbor?
Since its founding in 1970, Arbor Montessori has had a strong tradition of parent involvement and financial giving to support our school’s programs, goals and mission. It is through this tradition of generosity that we ensure a legacy of the highest quality in education and personal development for our children.
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating our children. Donations enhance our children’s academic programs allowing Arbor to keep tuition affordable and provide:
- Financial assistance to current families in need, which helps maintain a diverse and rich student experience
- Continuing education for our incredible teachers and staff, who so profoundly impact our children’s learning and development
- Necessary funding for our thriving athletic program through the Booster Club
Each year Arbor relies on voluntary financial support from our board, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and alumni, parents of alumni, friends and corporate matching gifts through our Annual Fund and Founders Fund. Additional support comes through our annual fundraising event, the Arbor Auction, as well as Giving Partners, Arbor Store and school picture purchases.
For additional information on how you can support Arbor Montessori School contact our Development Office.
A big thank you to all who gave to Arbor’s 2016 Annual Fund.
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating our children. To bridge the gap, each year Arbor relies on much-needed donations to enhance our children’s academic programs. This is why a contribution to the Annual Fund is the first and most important gift that we ask of our community every fall. Your financial gift can ensure a legacy of the highest quality in education and personal development for our children while sharing the mission of Arbor.
All donors making gifts to the Annual Fund are offered the opportunity to have their names publicly listed in the Annual Report along with their level of giving.
