Did you know... Tuition alone does not cover all the expenses required to provide children with an exceptional Montessori education. Fundraising compensates for the difference between tuition revenue and the actual costs of educating our students. Private support is essential and gifts – no matter the size – make an impact on our school and the programs we provide.
We have a number of ways to provide this additional support to WMS. In the late fall of each year we conduct an Annual Giving Campaign. Each spring we host a Gala Auction. Additionally, we choose a few other fundraising events each year such as book sales, dinners out, and raffles.
Many companies offer a matching gift benefit that may actually double gifts to Webster Montessori School. Please contact the human resource department at your place of business and ask how you can obtain their matching gift form.
Remember, gifts, whether of time, talent, or treasure, are an investment in Webster Montessori School’s future and the quality education we have been providing our community since 1967.
Giving is easy! Simply mail a check to: Webster Montessori, 1310 Five Mile Line Road, Webster, NY 14580. We'll send a receipt to you to be used as proof of your tax-deductible contribution.
