Annual Giving

ANNUAL GIVING

With community being at the heart of Montessori, WMS is grateful for our community that comes together every year to support our philanthropic efforts through generous donations from parents, grandparents, community members, matching donations, faculty, staff, alumni and even students.

Contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign enables our school to make the necessary short and long-term investments that ensure every student is well-supported and receiving the best possible Montessori education.

This year's contributions will support WMS’s operations as well as budget areas that have been particularly affected by the pandemic including: 

  • Technology and resources to support remote and in-person learning
  • Campus retrofits, furniture and PPE equipment to support health and safety
  • Additional staff compensation to reduce co-mingling

We have all had to make adjustments, and it is in large part thanks to our community’s contributions to annual giving that affords us the ability to stay nimble, and continue responding to the needs of the moment.

From November 10 through December 8, we invite all families to consider a gift that is meaningful to them and participate to the best of their ability.

We are grateful for your commitment to Woodinville Montessori School and allowing us to remain steadfast to our school’s vision, mission and values.

MATCHING GIFTS

A wonderful benefit offered by many employers is to match their employee's charitable contributions. WMS receives considerable support each year from companies like Microsoft, Google, Boeing and others. All matching gifts and gifts of stock are credited towards your total donation to WMS. All gifts are fully tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
