There are many ways you can help support the mission of Woodland Hill Montessori School. One option is a donation to The WHMS Fund. Because tuition covers only part of the cost of running the school, we must rely on the generosity of the community to help sustain our rich learning environment. WHMS Fund donations make a difference and benefit every WHMS student. Every gift in every amount helps to ensure the legacy of our school.
The WHMS Fund provides essential unrestricted funds in support of the school’s general operations, and this year, will assist in purchases of materials, furniture and items for the new classrooms, library and maker’s workshop.
To commemorate the opening of our new spaces, we have decided to do something special this year. The WHMS Fund…Building Futures Brick-by-Brick will allow anyone who makes a gift of $250 or more to receive an inscribed, commemorative brick that will be placed within the new amphitheater. To give a gift of $250, $500, or $1,000, use this link to make your donation and inscribe a brick. Bricks ordered by December 31, 2019 will be installed by May 2020.
All donations to the WHMS Fund are appreciated. If you prefer to donate an amount other than $250, $500 or $1,000, please use our website. If your gift is $250 or above, let us know if you are interested in a recognition brick by indicating that in the Comments section.
