Your donations to the Mountaintop Annual Fund help to fill the $1,500 gap per student between tuition revenue and operating expenses at the school. Donations to the Annual Fund are used for a number of important initiatives that contribute to a high-quality Montessori education. Gifts are used to provide our excellent staff with professional development opportunities and ultimately help us retain these exceptional educators. The Annual Fund enhances our ability to supply our classrooms with high-quality Montessori materials, and to maintain our gardens and grounds. These donations enhance our ability to provide financial aid, among many other critical operating expenses at the school. A robust annual fund campaign sends a strong signal that we all value our school’s mission.
At Mountaintop, every child is valued and celebrated. When you make Mountaintop your philanthropic priority you are investing in a better future for our children and the many lives that they will touch in the future. Please join me in making a tax-deductible contribution to this important fundraising effort, the Mountaintop Annual Fund.
