Fundraising & Gifts
The Montessori School offers several ways for our community to be able to contribute to fundraising and to donate gifts directly to classrooms.
Gifts to the Classrooms – Our teachers create wishlists which you can contribute to fulfilling with a donation of any amount. View classroom wishlists and the store online now!
Gifts to the Growth Plan – The Board of Directors has developed a growth plan that includes major capital improvements that will benefit the children. All donations to this plan are reserved for this purpose. Please consider giving to this tax deductible cause. Every donation helps. Donations of more than $500 are acknowledged by a brick plaque engraved with your name in the school’s main hall.
Gifts to the Endowment – The Kalamazoo Community Foundation manages The Montessori School Endowment Fund. Interest earned on this fund is reinvested for the future security of the school.
Gifts via Shopping – Supporters of The Montessori School may earn funds for the school just by shopping on Amazon.com. Amazon will donate a portion of the sales total to the school; all you have to do is shop!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon.com that allows customers to enjoy the same wide selection of products and convenient shopping on the site while earning money for our school. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases to The Montessori School when it is selected by customers. Simply visit smile.amazon.com and login to your existing Amazon account. In the search box, search for “Montessori Children’s Center Inc.” and be sure to select the center located in Kalamazoo, MI. Once you click “select” you are all set to shop as you normally would. Please remember to login to the AmazonSmile address each time you shop on amazon.com. Your selection of The Montessori School will be saved at that login; using the traditional Amazon.com login site will not earn funds for the school.
We truly appreciate all your support! Happy shopping!
