Giving to Chesapeake Montessori School
Chesapeake Montessori School is a non-profit institution and depends on the support and generosity of our families and friends to provide funds necessary to maintain the high standards of our school. As with most independent schools, tuition revenue alone does not cover the actual cost of educating our students. Our commitment to our students and to our mission is fulfilled through a commitment from our community.
CMS is a 501(3)(c) institution so all donations are tax deductible.
Ways to Give to CMS
Donations to the Annual Fund supports the general operating budget and is the most important way of supplementing the difference between tuition revenue and total operating costs. Annual fund gifts from our families, alumni, alumni families and friends support current educational programs. They also allow us to plan for future growth of the highly respected educational program that has been a hallmark of our school for more than three decades.
