Who buys groceries? Coffee at Starbucks? Shops online at Amazon? Holiday gifts? All of us! We have several ways that you can shop and support MSD's Parent Association's fundraising efforts. 


MSD is a part of AmazonSmile, which is a charitable donation program through To support us, all you need to do is go to, connect your Amazon account and search for Denver Montessori Society (MSD’s legal name) and choose us as your charitable organization.  Everything is the same, the prices, Amazon Prime, etc., but MSD receives .5% on all qualified item purchases. Just make sure to bookmark and always shop from that site so we receive the donation. Click here for a FAQ sheet on AmazonSmile. Also, make sure to invite your family and friends to use AmazonSmile and support us - here's a sample email that one of our parents sent to her family:

"Hey family -

As you do your Back to School & holiday shopping and find yourself ordering off of Amazon, please take a moment to log in to and look for Denver Montessori Society. If you do, part of your purchase will go towards Ella and Micah's school. It does not, however, affect the cost or your purchasing process. It's all the same as everything on Amazon. You can do this all year long too!

Thanks for your support - Meghan"
