Innovation Montessori Ocoee is the model of a public Montessori due, in part, to the unwavering support of its community. Planned Giving was originally launched to support specials like Spanish, Music, and Art. It successfully funded those positions the first year, and it now supports the needs of our Operational Budget. For the 2017-2018 school year, the goal is $25,000. We are not quite there yet. Families can sign up for one-time or monthly donations.
Planned Giving is the core operational fundraising effort, and it replaces the need for our parents and students to engage in door-to-door fundraising sales. Every dollar from Planned Giving goes directly to the operations to support our school’s day-to-day offerings. This is separate from the Capital Campaign, which is dedicated to supporting our new campus.
As a charter school, we operate on approximately .70 of every dollar a regular public school receives. This makes our need to fundraise a bit more, and we’ve been able to support the amazing extras our school offers, like additional classroom and specials staffers and Montessori materials. Enrichments like band, chorus, baton, and chess enrich our students and our community. We ask for your contribution to keep the educational experience rewarding and enriching for all students. Thank you for your support!
As a 501c3 organization, every dollar donated is tax-deductible.
