Arbor Annual Fund

A donation towards our community

Ensuring A Healthy Financial Future

Established in 1996 to serve the broader school community’s growing fundraising needs, the Annual Fund ensures Arbor can maintain an authentic Montessori environment which allows your child to thrive. Last year, 87% of Arbor’s families and 100% of our staff made donations to the Annual Fund, on par with the highest giving levels among Atlanta private schools. This year our goal is 100%. By participating in the Annual Fund, you will help to ensure that your child is building a love of learning inside a dynamic, diverse, vibrant, and supportive community.



Why Should I Donate to Arbor’s Annual Fund?

Arbor Athletics

Teams include cross country, basketball, track & field, and ultimate frisbee. These teams are open to any student from 5th through 8th years. Your support funds equipment, uniforms, fees, and rentals, ensuring students experience teamwork, sportsmanship, physical challenges, and personal growth.


Faculty Excellence

Arbor teachers are passionate, highly engaged educators committed to every child’s academic success and emotional growth. As our students never stop learning, our teachers continuously strive to become better educators. Your support directly benefits the professional growth of our faculty.


Tuition Assistance

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


Join Arbor’s Phoenix Society

Families who contribute $1,000 or more become members of Arbor’s Phoenix Society. As a Phoenix Society member, you have the opportunity to meet with other Phoenix Society members and with school leadership for a “state of the school” presentation at a special evening reception.

A donation to the Annual Fund is a donation towards every student and family in our Montessori community.

How Do I Give?

Our monthly payment plan makes giving convenient and cost-effective. Your monthly pledge can be charged along with your Smart Tuition Account or it can be charged to your credit card for the amount of time you desire. Options to make a one-time payment or a pledge are also still available.

Let’s Start Now!

Our Annual Fund Drive begins October 1st, and we’ll be “Done in 31!” The sooner we have your contribution or your pledge, the sooner we can plan and allocate those monies towards improving our school.

Thank you in advance for ensuring a healthy financial future for Arbor Montessori.
