Giving FAQ

Each gift makes a difference

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s a very special time in the history of Princeton Montessori School. Since the school opened its doors in 1968, the school has grown from humble beginnings in one classroom to a world-known, highly-regarded educational institution. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year,  we look to the future and imagine the possibilities in further serving our families and the greater community.  Therefore, we are pleased to announce the launch of our 50th Anniversary Campaign, a fundraising effort to provide enhanced learning opportunities for your children.

In celebration of our 50th anniversary as a school, and with a vision to the future, we are enlisting our current and past Princeton Montessori community members to participate in our 50th Anniversary Campaign, to support program initiatives and capital needs that will support our immediate goals for the school as well establish an investment fund that can help sustain us in the coming decades.

How can my family contribute?

It is our sincere hope that each current family will consider making a financial contribution to the campaign.  It is through our community coming together, and sharing generously, that we will be able to grow into the next 50 years. We hope you will make Princeton Montessori School a philanthropic priority for your family.  Click here to give a gift today.

How much should I give?

We realize that each family is different and that there is not a set amount that is appropriate for everyone. We ask that you give as generously as you can.  Our 50th anniversary is a significant milestone, and as such we are asking everyone in the community to “think big” and support the school in a way that is meaningful to your family and reflective of a golden anniversary.  A contribution to the 50th Anniversary Campaign is one that will pay lifetime dividends for your children, and for future generations. In addition, your donation, unlike tuition fees, is 100% tax-deductible. Click here to give a gift today.

When should I give?

We will be kicking off the 50th Anniversary Campaign off on Giving Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Giving on before or on this day will help to secure the campaign as we enter the new year. We hope you will make Princeton Montessori School a philanthropic priority for your family.  Click here to give a gift today.

What is the 50th Anniversary Campaign goal?

Our goal is not a monetary one, but to simply reach 100% participation from our current families. We hope that ALL families will contribute to this year’s 50th Anniversary Campaign. Can we count on you? All gifts – no matter how large or how small – are welcome and appreciated. Help us get to 100% participation. 

Who supports the 50th Anniversary Campaign?

Each family, past and present, plays an active role in the school community. Our current parents, former parents, grandparents, alumni, trustees, friends, faculty, and staff share the responsibility of meeting the school’s educational goals and ensuring a soundly governed and financially healthy institution. Click here to give a gift today.

Why don’t you just raise the tuition?

Tuition alone does not cover all of the school’s annual operating expenses. In fact, tuition only covers about 86% of yearly expenses. The school relies on gifts from trustees, parents, alumni, corporations, and friends of the School to bridge this gap. And remember, your donation to the 50th Anniversary Campaign is tax-deductible, while tuition is not. Click here to give a gift today.

How can I ask my employer to match my donation?

Many families take advantage of their employer’s matching gifts program, doubling or tripling their gift to the school. Your human resources department will be able to tell you if your employer will match your donation.

I’m an alumni. Why should I be asked to give too?

Many of our alumni tell us that Princeton Montessori School provided the foundation for their character formation and success experienced at high school, college, and beyond. Just as annual gifts supported your education in your years at the school, your gift each year ensures that the tradition of excellence in developing the whole child continues on for current and future students. As communicated before graduation, much is done for you when you are a child. As you mature into adulthood, it is time to begin giving back. Giving back to a place that provided so much to your own development is a rewarding and valuable part of being an alumnus.
