Contributions to the Annual Giving Fund make an immediate, positive impact on the students, teachers and programs that make WMS a great Montessori school, and funds a vital 5% of the annual operating budget.
With community being at the heart of Montessori, WMS is grateful for our community that comes together every year to support our annual giving goals through generous donations from parents, grandparents, community members, matching donations, faculty, staff, alumni and even students. We strive to reach 100% participation and invite all families to consider a gift that is meaningful to them and participate to the best of their ability.
In the 2019-2020 Annual Giving Campaign, our sense of community proudly grew with an increased all-school participation rate of 86%—the highest we have seen in years. We greatly appreciate how much our families care for WMS and the continued excellence our students experience in an authentic Montessori education.
Thank you for supporting WMS and our mission to encourage a joy in lifelong learning!
