At Montessori School of Denver, we rely on the generosity of our community to deliver one of the best educational models in the country. A gift to the Annual Fund supports our students, faculty, and staff and helps to sustain our future. As with all independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating a student and operating our school.
The gap between what you pay for tuition and what it actually costs to run MSD is about $1,000 per student. To make up the difference, we count on all members of the MSD community – parents, Trustees, faculty, staff, grandparents, students, alums, parents of alums, and friends of MSD--to help our school be the best it can be.
How can you help?
1. We need 100% parent participation. MSD applies for multiple grants every year, and parent participation in our annual fundraising event is criteria used by ALL funding organizations, as these funders look to that number to determine if parents support and believe in their child’s school.
2. We need to bridge the gap of $1,000 per student. Some families can give at the gap level, some give what they can, while others are able to give more than the gap to help our school. Together, we gather up all the gifts to keep the goodness going. In short, every gift matters. And in this way, we offer all of our parents an opportunity to make a tax-deductible gift while keeping tuition as low as possible. By bridging the gap, you’re helping to ensure MSD is as inclusive a student body as possible while maintaining our competitiveness, both locally and nationally.
Our goal is to raise $175,000 from the GoodWorks Annual Fund. Will you join us to help make our goal a reality? Please click here to make your donation online.
