Help Us Grow Catholic Montessori


Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize,

but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.

— Maria Montessori

MSW needs community support

 As at the heart of its mission, MSW Montessori wants to provide the choice of an authentic Catholic Montessori education to as many children as possible.
Donation dollars are relied upon to bridge the gap between daily operations, maintenance and expansion costs and tuition. 
As a 501(c)(3), all donations to Mary Seat of Montessori are deductible to the full extent allowed by law. 
Mary Seat of Wisdom is an independent school that does not receive financial support from state or local agencies, a parish, or the diocese.
We depend on tuition fee payments and fundraising to fully cover basic operating expenses, and have been able to grow as an exceptional institution because of parent participation and a history of generous giving.

MSW Annual Appeal

This annual request for support is a critical source of funding for Mary Seat of Wisdom.

Your tax-deductible gift provides extra support to the operating budget in many ways such as increasing the amount available for financial aid and faculty professional development. When there are un-budgeted expenses such as unexpected facility repairs, the MSW Annual Fund is there to make sure the school can cover those expenses without sacrificing programs.

The MSW Annual Appeal positions the school to have financial stability and flexibility that allows it to fulfill its mission and serve its students.

It is our hope that every MSW family will contribute an amount that is meaningful for them.

Contributions to The MSW Annual Appeal support numerous activities.

These annual giving gifts are tax-deductible, and payments can be made until December of the giving year. Gifts may also be eligible for matching funds from employers. Reaching 100% parent participation in The MSW Annual Fund is important as is reaching our financial goal of $50,000. Each family is strongly encouraged to give to its ability and to fulfill pledged commitments. 

These are some of the ways your contributions support Mary Seat of Wisdom Montessori School:​

  • Professional development

  • Student financial assistance

  • Replacement of worn classroom materials

  • Salaries and Benefits for our guides and staff

  • Campus Utilities

  • Maintenance​

Donations can be made by check or Paypal
