What is an Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund allows our supporters to make tax-deductible monetary contributions to support CMA. The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition dollars and program needs.
CMA is one of the rare independent Montessori schools in the greater Cincinnati area that offers enhanced student services, such as intervention specialists and reading specialists. In addition, we are committed to continuing our art and music programs, even as other schools have had to make cuts in these areas due to budget constraints. Our classroom instructors and assistants are all Montessori-certified, or are aspiring Montessori teachers.
Maintaining these valuable programs, as well as providing ongoing professional development for our amazing staff depends on generous support in giving to the Annual Fund.
Our school, like all other private schools, sets its tuition below its cost and makes up the difference through tax-deductible gifts to our Annual Fund, as well as other areas of contributed support. Gifts to the Annual Fund are used in the fiscal year in which they are received, and provide supplemental funding for the day-to-day operating budget for our school; which may include offsetting the cost of teachers’ benefits and professional development, student enrichment programs, and facility needs.
How much should I contribute?
No specific dollar amount is expected. All pledge/contribution amounts are welcome, and no gift is too small.
