The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of funding for TMS, which supports our school and the academic excellence for which we are known. The Annual Fund provides for a wide variety of academic programming, Montessori materials for our classrooms, professional development for our staff, and all aspects to running a healthy school especially vital during the COVID pandemic. 

Last year, we named our Annual Fund the "Haines-Zaharchuk Annual Education Fund" in honor of alumni parent, Sue Zaharchuk. Your gifts will memorialize her wish to perpetuate The Montessori School for years to come. Gifts made to this fund will directly impact the children of TMS through scholarships, enriched Montessori programs and a financially stable school. In this historic year, your generosity is needed now more than ever. 

We invite you to join other donors to this year’s Annual Education Fund. Contact development@themontessorischool.us for more information or to learn more about donating.

Thank You from Head of School

How Can I Donate to TMS?

Gifts to TMS can be made in the following ways:

CASH / CREDIT CARD GIFTS  The easiest way to make a gift to TMS is to write a check and mail it to TMS, 1701 Jarrettown Rd, Dresher, PA 19025. Or, donate from our website using your preferred credit card.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS  Many companies match employees’ charitable giving. Check with the human resources department of your employer for more information, and double your gift!

GIFTS-IN-KIND  These donations may consist of furnishings, art, musical instruments, books, etc. TMS will provide a gift receipt as your tax acknowledgment. 

BEQUESTS  A bequest is donation of cash, personal property or real estate provided in the donor’s will to a non-profit institution. Consult your tax advisor for assistance.

GIFTS OF STOCK  A gift of appreciated securities can bring the donor greater tax savings than a gift of cash. Check with your financial advisor for assistance.

UNITED WAY  Look for “The Montessori School Association” (or our former name, “New Horizons Montessori School Assoc”). For UW of Greater Philadelphia and Southern NJ, look for Code #3568: The Montessori School Association.

EITC  The Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program (EITC) provides greater access to education through public/private collaboration. Pennsylvania offers a unique opportunity for businesses as well as individuals to reduce tax liability by contributing to registered scholarship organizations like TMS.
