While 100% of Walnut Farm Montessori School’s operating expenses are covered through tuition, WFMS Annual Giving allows the school to go above and beyond to invest in powerful projects, initiatives and improvements that enhance current programming for all of our students. Last year, funds raised through Annual Giving went toward building designated Montessori classroom space that will allow us to better serve all of our students. A lovely building was added to our toddler campus, and the beautiful, light-filled lower level of the Elementary building will be designated for Upper Elementary.
This year, we will utilize Annual Giving to build outdoor classrooms for our toddler and elementary students, and improve our playgrounds for all of our students. Annual giving also allows us to expand our capabilities to offer scholarships, support teachers and provide expanded programming. Some of you receive substantial matching charitable support from your employer. If you have an interest in making a donation and have a specific allocation in mind, please contact us so we may work together to make the most of your contribution.
Gifts are 100% tax deductible. Donors are encouraged to check with their employer to discover if company donation matches are available. No gift is too small and every single donation equally contributes to reaching our 100% participation goal.
In addition to Annual Giving, WFMS hosts two other major fundraising initiatives to fund major projects and initiatives. In the fall, the Parent Association partners with the parent community to host Walnut Farm Fall Festival. This event invites WFMS families and friends to come out for a morning of family-friendly activities, local food vendors, and a pumpkin patch all located on our beautiful 6-acre campus. In the Spring we host From Roots to Wings event which takes place in the spring.
