Investing in our children as learners is a vital component of our mission.
Sunstone’s Annual Fund ensures Sunstone’s programs are available to each and every child who wants a Montessori education. The Annual Fund is Sunstone’s most essential fundraising effort and involves all members of the community. The funds raised for Sunstone’s Annual Fund make a vital difference in what is possible each school year, allowing our classroom staff to continue to provide an extraordinary Montessori experience.
Gifts to the Annual Fund support Sunstone’s mission to develop the whole child by providing an academically strong, emotionally nurturing, and socially supportive environment in accordance with AMI guidelines for Montessori education. Every student benefits – no matter the size of the gift.
We strive for 100% participation from our board, staff, and families. By embracing a culture of philanthropy where every family contributes what they can, we become a more robust and connected community. Building our community’s strength benefits each and every student.
EVERY dollar counts. EVERY student benefits. EVERY gift is appreciated. No matter the size of the gift, please consider contributing to Sunstone’s Annual Fund today.
Why does Sunstone have an Annual Fund?
Sunstone’s Annual Fund ensures Sunstone can maintain an authentic Montessori environment that allows your child to thrive. Tuition does not fully cover the cost of operating the school. We rely on the philanthropy of parents, alumni, and friends to make up the difference.
Together, we share a common purpose to secure the future of Sunstone Montessori School. The quality and strength of our programs relies on our entire community who are all stakeholders in the school, beneficiaries of those who gave before us, and guardians of our future.
How are donations to the Annual Fund used?
Your tax-deductible gift provides extra support to the operating budget, financial aid, staff education, and enrichment programs. Your gift also bolsters Sunstone’s savings to ensure a Sunstone education for future students.
Why do we strive for 100% participation?
Every gift matters! Outside funding sources and individuals are much more willing to consider supporting Sunstone Montessori if it is demonstrated that those who know the school best have given generously to support it.
