Annual Fund

6 months ago

The Annual Fund is our yearly appeal for donations that support an educational environment of excellent teaching and learning. The Annual Fund underwrites the many tools and activities that support a well-rounded and vibrant Montessori education. It funds program enrichment directly in the following ways:

  • Technology
  • Physical Education
  • Foreign Language
  • Classroom Assistants
  • Visual and Performing Arts
  • Montessori Teaching Materials

Why is my gift important?

The state of Colorado ranks 35th in public school funding, and charter schools like RMS receive 20% less funding than other public schools. WE BELIEVE OUR CHILDREN DESERVE MORE. Every dollar you give to the Annual Fund goes directly to make up this difference. PARTICIPATION IS KEY. High participation shows the broader community that we believe in our school and strengthens the school’s position when applying for grants, loans and other external funding.OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE 100% PARTICIPATION FROM OUR STAKEHOLDERS AND FAMILIES OF STUDENTS ATTENDING ROSS.In 2015-2016, our average gift was $407, representing a wide array of individual donations. Any donation, no matter the amount, is welcome and critical to our success.
