Donate to Arbor Montessori School

Arbor Relies on Your Support

Since its founding in 1970, Arbor Montessori has maintained 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 high quality education and personal development for our children.

Tuition alone does not cover the cost—Arbor relies on donations to enhance our academic programs, including:


Tuition Assistance

Arbor believes in keeping our community strong by providing Tuition Assistance for current families facing financial hardships. This program is essential to maintaining Arbor’s economic diversity and is funded entirely through Annual Fund giving.

Faculty Excellence

Arbor teachers are passionate and highly engaged educators who are committed to every child’s academic success and emotional growth. Just as our students never stop learning, our teachers continuously strive to become better educators. Your support directly impacts the professional growth of our Faculty Excellence.

Arbor Athletics

Arbor Athletics include cross country, basketball, track & field, and ultimate frisbee. These teams are open to any student–of any ability–from 5th through 8th years. All coaches are volunteers. Your support funds equipment, uniforms, league fees, and facilities’ rentals, ensuring Arbor students have the opportunities to experience teamwork, sportsmanship, physical challenges, and personal growth.


Each year, the staff at Arbor reaches out for voluntary financial support from our board, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, alumni, parents of alumni, friends, and corporate matching gifts through our Annual Fund. Additional support comes through our annual fundraising event, the Arbor Auction, as well as Giving Partners, the Arbor Store, and school picture purchases.
