This is the primary source of support for our school, bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost of an ASM education. Your participation reflects your support of our mission and values and strengthens the ASM community. Our goal is 100% participation!
All gifts are tax-deductible for the calendar year (July 1 – June 30) in which they are made.
The spirit of philanthropy is evident by our community’s support of ASM’s Annual Fund. Each year we are fortunate to use financial donations to enhance and enrich our programs at ASM. A special thank you to our alumni families, grandparents and community partners for their continued support. These contributions allow us to:
- Purchase new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum materials for students in all program levels.
- Provide faculty and staff with a variety of professional development opportunities that directly and positively impact our students’ experience at ASM.
- Update playground structures to ensure a safe and fun outdoor experience for our students.
- Invest in new curriculum across program levels as well as upgrade our Montessori materials.
ASM relies on tuition revenue to support its operating budget. Donations help us to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of delivering a robust program to our children. This tax deductible gift is important regardless of its size. In addition many companies offer a matching gift program, thus increasing donations to ASM. Go to WGBH.org to learn more about their matching gift program.
Participation in the Annual Fund is also important when the school applies for grants. Foundations that award grant monies look at a school’s rate of participation in the Annual Fund and they look favorably upon a school when they see full support from its community. We strive for 100% participation by our families, Board of Directors, faculty, and staff.
