Montessori School of Evergreen, like all independent schools, keeps our tuition lower to make our remarkable education more affordable. Thus we rely on the generosity of our broader community to support the excellent education and extraordinary opportunities offered here, and to help us meet our annual budget gap, which is usually about 10%.
Your gift to MSE makes a difference, no matter what your ability to give. This year we invite our community to support us to reach our 2017-2018 Annual Campaign goal of $145,000. Your donation to MSE supports staff salaries, field-studies, local and global travel opportunities, classroom materials, tuition assistance, professional development and much more.
Don’t forget to ask for a Colorado Child Care Tax Credit Receipt which will get you a tax credit of 50% of your donation on your Colorado taxes. See the table below for examples:
2. Can we raise tuition instead of fundraise to help with rising costs?
One of the most important benefits of making a gift to the Annual Campaign is that it is fully tax deductible, while tuition payments are not. That means that you can enjoy the benefits of the tax deduction as well as the “feel good” benefits of giving back to our school.
At MSE, we believe that a diverse experience gives students a realistic world view. For this reason, we are committed to keeping tuition affordable for a wide range of families to ensure that our students enjoy a wonderful experience at our school.
Families, friends, grandparents, and alumni of the school are invited to make a personally significant gift to support MSE in the important work of educating our new leaders of the 21st century. Every gift—no matter the size—makes a difference in the lives of our students.
4. What is the importance of 100% participation at MSE?
100% participation in the Annual Campaign sends an important message to foundations, grant-makers, and our community at large that we believe in Montessori School of Evergreen. Your participation matters more than the size of your gift.
5. Does everyone at MSE participate in the annual auction? What ways can I help?
The MSE Annual Auction is a great way for our parents to build community, socialize, and continue our mission. We encourage everyone in our community to participate in the annual auction because it’s a fun way to support MSE. Whether it’s volunteering to help with the planning, donating a one-of-a-kind item for the auction, or attending this exciting event, we invite everyone to get involved.
