Ways to Give

Support from the community is a vital part of our character and philosophy. Parents, extended family, past parents, alumni, friends and neighbors collaborate to help through donations and volunteering. We all participate to insure the financial health and sustainability of Nature’s Way Montessori through Friends of Nature’s Way. Working together is a value we practice, we enjoy and in which we include our students every day.


Donate by Credit Card or Paypal Account

You can make a one-time donation or set up a monthly recurring donation online using your credit card.  Please note the school pays a small processing fee for credit card donations. To donate by credit card click here:  (coming soon)

Other Ways To Donate

You can also donate in other ways. For instance, many employers offer a matching gift program so check to see if that is an option for you. You can also gift stock to the school which may offer you tax advantages. If you are interested in either of these or in asking about other donation options, email us at

Annual Fall Giving

The dedication given to our school is constantly reflected through our families, Board members, and faculty. Every donation is 100% tax-deductible.

We do not receive financial aid from the government, the state, or the city. Our tuition is solely used for operating fee’s and staff income. While this money covers most costs, there is a huge need to augment our costs, keeping tuition affordable.

Our goal this year is to reach $100,000 to fully support the needs of NWM.  We have established our annual levels of recognition by donating in levels listed below:

  • Founders- $10,000+
  • Benefactors- $5,000-$9,000
  • Director’s Circle & Sponsors- $2,000-$4,000
  • Leadership Circle- $1000-$1,900
  • Partners- $500-$999
  • New Friends of NWM- $100-$500

Our message can only be heard and answered by those who have it in their hearts and minds, that Montessori can form a child into their own independent, functional, thoughtful, and gracious person. We hope that you and your family will contribute in a meaningful way. We always strive for 100% participation.

Annual Auction 

Our Annual Auction is another way to support our school.  Each fall, a committee is formed and an event is planned for the spring.  We need lots of support for this event as it grows each year.  Look for sign up sheets and opportunities at our Back to School event.
