2016-2017 Annual Report

The Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund operates at the heart of our school and its impact is felt in the lives of our students everyday. When a family decides to invest in a Montgomery School education it is because they want the very best for their child. In order to provide a high-quality education at a competitive cost, we must raise additional funds outside of tuition. Like all independent schools, tuition only covers a certain percentage of the daily operational cost of running the school. Philanthropic dollars raised through voluntary support help make a high-quality education EXTRAORDINARY!

Support of the Montgomery Annual Fund is the most direct way in which to philanthropically support the school. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and every penny goes into offering wonderful opportunities to our students. Your child will experience amazing field trips, wonderful guest speakers, strong extra-curricular programs and a faculty committed to preparing them for a bright future.

Gifts to the Annual Fund are usually unrestricted, but you can designate your annual support to one of the following areas:

  • Area of greatest need
  • Academics
  • Arts
  • Athletics
  • Financial aid
  • Technology

As your child continues their journey through Montgomery, we hope you will consider how your support of the Montgomery Fund can make a difference. Please consider joining the hundreds of others committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. Give today.

Why I Give...


We are proud to continue our support of Montgomery School, even though our daughter has graduated and is now in college. The foundational education and character development she acquired while at Montgomery has allowed her to blossom into an inquisitive student, and a well-rounded individual. We are indebted to Montgomery for providing her with such a solid education which will guide her through her life. - Maureen Fendrick, pp ’11


I give to Montgomery because I know how important my Montgomery education was to my development and success. I want to be able to provide the same opportunity for current students, the future generations of learners.
