Make a Plan – To Give!
We rely on financial contributions of all sizes from our entire community, including parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, staff and friends.
With everyone’s support, we hope to raise $100,000 in donations this year. To do this, we ask that you please think carefully about your connection to our school and give as generously as your heart and finances allow.
Annual Giving contributions like yours help make up the difference between what every family pays in tuition and the real cost of our distinctive Play Mountain Place educational experience—an experience where children learn that education is something that they participate in, something that they are empowered to form themselves. Your gift also supports the work of our outstanding teachers, the robust scholarship program, our commitment to diversity, our anti-bias curriculum, and the care and improvement of our beautiful campus.
Please know that donations of any size are welcome and appreciated! Past contributions have ranged from $20 to $20,000.
You can even set up a monthly donation online and send us a recurring contribution. Sending us a donation every month helps form a predictable source of income we can count on to fund and further our mission.
It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you to make a plan – to give! Every gift makes a significant impact and is a solid expression of a commitment to our vision, mission and core values.
