A Culture of Giving
The broader Hershey community of parents, staff, board members, grandparents, alumni and friends all participate in our culture of giving.
Through adult giving, the importance of giving is reinforced to children, and the school is able to provide the highest quality
education at a reasonable rate.
We ask every family to participate in the three annual fundraising efforts of the school, at whatever level they feel is
meaningful and comfortable for them.
Annual Giving Campaign
Annual giving covers a large part of the 7% gap left after tuition, and is the most important fundraising effort as a result! Hershey
Montessori School remains committed to keeping tuition at the most affordable rate possible, so that all families who wish to
attend the school can.
From November through June, we strive for 100% participation from our families, staff and board members. Full participation aids in
campaign success and shows foundations and grant-makers that our community whole-heartedly believes in, and supports, the mission and
values of the school.
Grandparents, relatives, alumni and friends of the school also lend their generous support to make this campaign a success each year.
Every donation makes a difference and is sincerely appreciated.
We have had a terrific show of support for the Annual Giving Campaign
so far - Thank you to all of you who have already sent in your pledges and
donations. If you have yet to participate, you can either turn in your pledge
card anytime, or click
Reaching our goal of 100% participation
by parents, board, and staff will keep our programs thriving and inspire
grantors and foundations to continue to give significant funding to of our
school. All of which adds up to make a great difference for every child who
walks through our doors.
Thank you for your support!
Annual Spring Benefit
A silent and live auction, dinner and entertainment make up this event known which is known to be the most fantastic adult event of the school year to benefit the
children! This grand endeavor requires a team of organizing parent volunteers and the participation of all families at some level to make this a fun and successful event.
It's the Hershey Hop!
This year's Annual Spring Benefit for the children will take place on May 2,
2015, at St. Noel Banquet Center in Willoughby Hills. As you know, parent
volunteer meetings have started and if you are interested in helping in any way,
Also, starting on black Friday, you
can show Playmatters in Mentor and 20% of your pre-tax purchase total will be

Benefit's silent auction. Drop off your original receipts to the designated box
in the front office at the Concord Campus before Winter Break (Playmatters does
not require a receipt for returns).
