Fundraising & Gifts
The Montessori School offers several ways for our community to be able to contribute to fundraising and to donate gifts directly to classrooms.
Gifts to the Classrooms – Our teachers create wishlists that you can contribute to fulfilling with a donation of any amount. View classroom wishlists and the store online now!
Gifts to our Kalamazoo Campus Capital Campaign – We are continuing to make improvements to our newly renovated elementary building, the grounds of both Kalamazoo properties, and the land between the properties to give the feel of one, unified campus. Additional projects that will be happening over the next few years include the construction of a greenhouse, the installation of a stove and hood in the elementary classroom, and a paved path connecting the primary and elementary buildings. Funds will continue to be raised to facilitate the completion of these projects and we kindly ask for your support. Donate here.
Gifts to the Growth Plan – The Board of Directors has developed a growth plan to raise funds to benefit the children in all programs. All donations to this plan are reserved for general programming enhancements and building and grounds improvements. Please consider giving to this tax-deductible cause. Every donation helps. Donations of more than $500 are acknowledged by a brick plaque engraved with your name in the central hall of our Kalamazoo primary building.
Gifts to the Endowment – The Kalamazoo Community Foundation manages The Montessori School Endowment Fund. Interest earned on this fund is reinvested for the future security of the school.
Gifts via Shopping – Supporters of The Montessori School may earn funds for the school just by shopping on Amazon.com. Amazon will donate a portion of the sales total to the school; all you have to do is shop!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon.com that allows customers to enjoy the same wide selection of products and convenient shopping on the site while earning money for our school. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases to The Montessori School when it is selected by customers. Simply visit smile.amazon.com and login to your existing Amazon account. In the search box, search for “Montessori Children’s Center Inc.” and be sure to select the center located in Kalamazoo, MI. Once you click “select” you are all set to shop as you normally would. Please remember to log in to the AmazonSmile address each time you shop on amazon.com. Your selection of The Montessori School will be saved at that login; using the traditional Amazon.com login site will not earn funds for the school.
We truly appreciate all your support! Happy shopping!
