Ways To Contribute

Annual Fund Appeal

Our Annual Fund Appeal kicks off in late fall. Annual appeal donations provide unrestricted funds to supplement our yearly operating budget. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation so that all families participate at the level they are most comfortable with and all gifts are greatly appreciated. Each child at Adams Montessori School benefits directly from your charitable contribution. For more information, please click on the "Annual Fund" icon on the left.

Gala Event

Parents, along with community members and staff, support gala events to benefit the toddler, primary and elementary programs at Adams Montessori School. These events provide revenue for capital improvements, classroom materials and program enhancements. Past events have included auctions and a comedy night. As the single largest volunteer effort, we encourage parents to join us in making these events successful.

Planned Giving

Planned giving allows Adams Montessori School to benefit from your generosity in years to come and ensure our future for the next generation. For information on making a planned giving gift, please contact Rosine Afshar, our Head of School.

In-Kind Donations

Our children have family members with wonderful hobbies, talents and occupational skills. We encourage parents and extended family members to donate time and items that can help enhance classrooms at the toddler, primary and elementary levels. These include your time, services, or goods gifted to the school. Over the past few years, donations have ranged from kitchen and craft supplies, to carpentry and computer services. The fair market value of such items is tax-deductible. The real market value is priceless.

Giving Tree

Come celebrate the future of our children! Giving Tree is a collage of engraved leaves gracing the entrance of our school and is offered to families, staff, friends and corporations. These unique plaques resemble leaves and are engraved with a family’s name, a thank you to a teacher, a word of support, the name and graduation of a student or the name of a loved one remembered or honored.

For further information, please contact the school at 617.773.8200 or info@adamsmontessori.org.

 

Montessori Model United Nations

Each year, the upper elementary students participate in the Montessori Model United Nations program. This program introduces our children to the greater global community and how we can help address concerns that impact people around the world. Students travel to New York City for four days, culminating in a mock session at the United Nations where students vote on drafted resolutions. This educational event is costly but represents an investment in our children they will remember for a lifetime. Your generous contribution and participation in fundraising campaigns supports their experience and helps us shape our future leaders.
