Future of Highlawn Annual Fund

Highlawn has enjoyed a rich tradition of providing a high quality Montessori education to area children since 1963. Through the years, Highlawn Montessori School has engaged in many fundraising activities and events. In addition to providing an opportunity for parents to have fun and get involved, these events serve an important purpose---they help to fund operational and capital needs at the school.

In a continued effort to make Highlawn affordable, tuition is always set significantly below operating costs. For the 2010 – 2011 school year, tuition was set approximately 6% below total costs creating a gap of over $40,000 for our fundraising efforts to cover.

Our continued dedication to make the Montessori experience as affordable as possible is why the Board of Directors has decided to begin an annual giving program, which is being named the Future of Highlawn. It is our hope that this program will provide a regular and ongoing avenue through which our parents, staff, alumni, and the community can support, and stay connected to Highlawn.

A healthy annual fund means more than a balanced budget and fiscal security for Highlawn. The generosity of donors represents future programs, facilities, and financial aid that will not be possible without your support. Highlawn Montessori is a 501c3 tax exempt organization and all gifts are tax deductible. Please feel free to contact Kathy Morrison at 913-649-6160 or kathy@highlawn.org with any questions you may have.

Highlawn is a unique, dynamic treasure and we hope it has touched your family with its warmth and energy. This is your chance to be an ongoing part of the excitement, to keep your connection with the school alive, to celebrate the Montessori educational philosophy with your generosity, and to show your dedication to Highlawn’s mission: Education for Life.
