At CMS we strive to keep tuition as affordable as possible so that we can offer Montessori education to as many families as we can. Our tuition is set to cover operating expenses so, to improve our programs and facilities at the school, we look to fundraising. Each year we undertake an Annual Giving campaign in the fall and host an auction fundraiser in the Spring. CMS is a non-profit school and donations are tax exempt. Many local business and corporations will match your donation! Please ask our Business Manager for more information.



Annual Fund Campaign
The CMS Annual Fund campaign asks community members, families and friends to support the school by making a donation this school year. So far, we’ve raised over $10,000 in additional support for CMS programs!
• You decide! This year we are offering donors a choice of where their contribution goes: Unrestricted funds (area of highest need), classroom materials, scholarship fund, buildings & grounds improvements, or staff development.
• Pledge online. Use FACTS for convenient online payment.
• Contributions are tax-deductible. 
• Matching gifts. Many companies will match the value of charitable gifts made by their employees and their families. Increase the impact your contribution makes by checking with your employer and asking for a match!
• We need each of you. Every donation makes an impact, whatever the size. Give what you can. The magic comes from all those gifts put together.
Continue the legacy we’ve established at Community Montessori. Share the vision of Dr. Maria Montessori and help us ensure that CMS is here another 35 years!
