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
- Financial aid
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 came to Montgomery from public school in 2012 because we were looking for a different school experience for our daughter. We currently have an eighth grader and a fifth grader and we know that we made the best decision ever! Over the past seven years, our children have excelled in academics, and they have also developed into leaders, risk takers and successful communicators. The teachers and administrators are encouraging, supportive, caring and really know our children as individuals! We donate and give back because we appreciate and love what Montgomery has given our children, both inside and outside of the classroom." - Steven and Courtney Herzog P'20 '23
