The annual Fund is a yearly fundraising program that provides an essential 12-15% of the operating budget. Each year, all members of the Acorn Montessori School community are asked to share in the vision and spirit of this effort by making a tax deductible contribution. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide immediate and visible benefits to each student by enabling Acorn Montessori School to:
- Attract and retain exceptional faculty certified and qualified to provide the Montessori program.
- Integrate music and visual arts into almost all areas of the curriculum.
- Offer social, cultural, and athletic experiences to enhance classroom lessons.
A donation can be made through The United Way, or directly to Acorn Montessori School. A donation in any amount will go a long way in continuing to cultivate the best environment for the development of our children. To make a fully tax deductible donation to Acorn, here are options to consider:
Option 1: A check made payable to Acorn Montessori School. Please check with your employer to see if they have a Matching Gift Program.
Option 2: If you work for an organization that utilizes a United Way Campaign, consider designating Acorn Montessori as your donor recipient. All you need to do is indicate the Donor Option Code #008068 on their form.
Option 3: Make a pledge of any amount, payable installments over the course of the school year.This works well for some since the payments can be made in smaller amount over the course of the school year (September to June).
