A balanced operating budget is important in order to assure the financial viability of the school, but the real purpose of the funds raised through this year’s One Fund campaign is to provide One Dream of an enhanced education to every Countryside Montessori student.

Why not charge the full amount of a child's education and not have the One Fund?
1. The One Fund is just one of the ways we keep tuition increases low. In doing so we are able to offer an affordable Montessori education to a diverse group of students.
2. The One Fund establishes relationships with donors. Equally, high parent participation signals to foundations that its parents are vested in the school and increases our chances of receiving outside funding.
3. Your gift is 100% tax-deductible; tuition is not.

What does the One Fund support?
1. Learning outside the Classroom
Environmental and outdoor education includes maintaining gardens and the certified School Habitat Program. Campus beautification projects and recycling programs cultivate pride, responsibility and care for the school environment and the world. Providing outdoor equipment for safe play helps children develop large-motor skills. Class field trips take Countryside students beyond the classroom on experiential learning adventures. In addition to supplementing curriculum, class trips enable students to learn independence, group dynamics, and foster relationships that extend beyond typical student-teacher boundaries.
