So, over the years I have donated money to so many various causes ~ an independent video store in Bellingham wanting to transition to a non-profit, a friend’s son’s rock band raising money to tour, another friend’s daughter’s clown troupe raising money to fix their van so that they could tour Canada, because everyone needs more laughter in their lives, a poet wanting to tour Eastern Europe, a yoga studio, to help pay for someone’s medical bills, to rescue animals . . . All good causes.
What I have never done is asked for money to support a cause I believe in with all of my heart ~ Montessori education. I am the Director of the Montessori School in Pullman, Eastern Washington, USA. We have about one hundred children enrolled in our school, and about sixteen percent of our students either pay reduced tuition through school scholarships, or through state funding. We offer scholarships because we want to offer Montessori education to as many children as possible, regardless of family finances. I truly believe that Montessori education helps children reach their true potential. That’s why all of my children went to Montessori schools, and I hope that my grandson will go to Montessori schools, too!
Now I turn to those who read my blog, hopefully for Montessori information and inspiration, to help support our school and some of our students who attend. I promise that we will put your contribution to very good use. And there is no such thing as a donation that is too small – that’s the power of crowd sourcing! And I will never sell your contact information or pester you with requests. This is it for this year.
We are a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization, so your contribution is 100% tax deductible, as allowed by law. You can donate by selecting this link:
