How to give

Do you value global education with a focus on peace and respect for all? Providing that education is our mission at Canberra Montessori, and we can help you pass those values onto the next generation of children.

Whether you are a CMS family member or an organisation or individual who wants to be part of our mission, donating to our tax­ deductible Building Fund allows us to provide a better range and quality of Montessori education to children.

Our children grow up to be respectful, critical thinkers who value being part of their community and contributing to it. How would you like to contribute to the future graduates of Canberra Montessori?

1. Our Current Campaigns

  • 2 new Cycle 1 classrooms in 2016
    With the growing Molonglo region as well as ongoing demand for high quality early childhood education, we are pleased to be opening 2 new Cycle 1 classrooms in 2016 for 3 ­ 6 year olds. This is a critical foundation stage for children, and an area that Montessori excels in. Show your support for this exciting development on our Holder campus by purchasing a paver for our Community Pathway or a window, door, or even a wall for the new building.  Please contact us for more information.
  • Our Karinya House scholarships
    Canberra Montessori School is very pleased to support the mothers and children at Karinya House via our two scholarships. Karinya House Home for Mothers & Babies Inc. is a community based, not­for­profit organisation providing supported accommodation, transitional housing, outreach services and support groups to pregnant and parenting women and their families who are in crisis. Since 2013 we have provided a number of places in our Parent Toddler Program to Karinya House families, and in 2016 we are very pleased to offer a full scholarship for a student from Cycle 1 onwards.
    Whether you would like to make a one­-off donation or sponsor the ongoing progress of a student, there are several ways for you to support our partnership with Karinya House.  Please contact us for more information.

2. Bequests ­ an ongoing legacy

One of the best ways you can support Canberra Montessori’s vision of peace and education for all children is by leaving a gift in your will. We recommend speaking to your solicitor or seeking other professional advice when preparing your bequest, and thank you for considering supporting Canberra Montessori with a bequest.  Please contact us for more information.

3. Directed donations

Is there a particular way you would like to contribute to the school? A project that you want to support? Some equipment or material that is special to you and you would like to provide to our students? Please contact our Business Manager who will be pleased to talk to you about how we can best support your wish.
