Welcome to Montgomery School’s Office of Development and Alumni Affairs—where we aim to inspire a spirit of philanthropy that supports our teachers, their students, the programs, and facilities on 60 idyllic acres. It is by elevating all parts of our community that we are able to fulfill our mission and engage young students with a sense of purpose.
Thanks to the generosity of alumni, friends, parents, grandparents, corporations and foundations, our students thrive here and are prepared for what’s next. Your gift makes you a partner in every student’s success—no matter where their journey takes them.
The Annual Fund—the Backbone of Support
The Annual Fund operates at the heart of the school and its impact is felt in the lives of our students everyday. 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 help make a high-quality education extraordinary.
We know that investing in a Montgomery School education for your child is a major decision with far reaching impact. Likewise, investing in the Montgomery School Annual Fund helps ensure that all aspects of the Montgomery experience are financially secure.
It starts with ONE spark.
When you feel a special connection with someone, or several people within your community, it sparks a feeling of belonging and unity; being part of something bigger than yourself. Montgomery School’s success is grounded in the meaningful relationships that are fostered between all members of our community.
As we embrace the new school year, we encourage you to connect and engage with us and each other -- especially now! We are so excited for what lies ahead and to see what ignites this year on campus and among our community.
Your contribution, whatever the amount, is incredibly important and very impactful, especially now! The Annual Fund is a critical component to Montgomery’s growth and continued success. Your donations support the latest technologies for our students, professional development for faculty and staff, and innovation for elevated learning. Funds raised through this year’s Annual Fund will provide us with more opportunities to enrich the student learning experience with new technology programs such as robotics, athletic equipment, premium art and music supplies, and so much more. This is where your support is needed the most.
A generous family foundation will contribute $0.50 cents for every $1 received, up to $150,000. Consider the impact you can make today!
Support of the Annual Fund is the most direct way to support Montgomery School. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and every penny helps create new opportunities and experiences for our students. They experience world-view-changing field trips, extra-curricular programs that encourage them to stretch their limits, and a supportive faculty who are committed to preparing them for an ever-changing future.
Gifts to the Annual Fund are usually unrestricted, but you are welcome to designate your gift 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 joining the hundreds of others committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students.
