Second only to tuition, the Annual Giving Fund is our largest source of yearly operating income. Your gift supports the students and teachers, and enriches the programs that make us a great Montessori school. Simply put, Annual Giving is the difference between a good school and a great school!

In 2017-18 our community came together to raise over $135,000 through generous donations from parents, grandparents, community members, matching donations, faculty, staff, parents of alumni, alumni and even students.

This school year we are striving for 100% participation with 10% growth in donations. All Annual Giving donors are recognized in the WMS Annual Report and Leadership Circle donors and above are celebrated at a special reception held each spring.

Matching gifts and gifts of stock are both wonderful ways to increase your giving power and are credited towards your total donation.

Visit the links on the right to find answers to all your Annual Giving questions, to see if your employer offers matching giving and to give online now. Thank you!
