Giving to Dandelion

We understand that a high-quality Montessori education is a privilege not afforded to everyone but believe strongly that each family has gifts to share as part of our community. As a result, a percentage of standard tuition supports families who need financial help in order to join our community.

Families and community members may also choose to donate additional time, money, or other resources. Dandelion Montessori is founded under Dandelion Parent Education Incorporated, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization listed on GuideStar. Our mission is to support children and their families through and outside of school by providing a Montessori Education. We do this through our school community and, as our school becomes more established, we will be planning Montessori-related parent education events that are open to the public.

Donations fund our tuition assistance program and allow us to support economic, ethnic, and racial diversity in our Montessori classroom.

Ways to Donate

You can also donate to Dandelion Montessori by patronizing a number of affiliate organizations that donate to Dandelion when you purchase items through them.

Feel free to distribute broadly!! It’s best practice to let people know when posting that this is an affiliate link (meaning we get a kickback), just so people know who the benefit is going to. Also, these kinds of things help with word-of-mouth advertising for Dandelion itself (we always get more hits to the website after something like this gets posted online).

Donate Materials

Our teachers have posted nice-to-have curricular items to our registry on Thankful Registry. Your gift to our classroom helps to make your generosity visible to our children.
