The Near North Fund

What is the Near North Fund?

The Near North Fund is the single largest opportunity our community has to provide financial support for the great work being done at Near North Montessori School. This annual appeal relies on the generosity of current families, faculty & staff, and alumni, and provides funds to afford broader access to our incredibly well prepared environments that foster equitable opportunities for all students, while also supporting our robust academic program.

Your gift to the Near North Fund helps ensure Near North Montessori School can carry out our mission of educating every student to reach their inherent potential by providing the best possible Montessori education.

Our hope is that 100% of our community will participate at a level that makes sense for their families budget. A gift today will bring us one step closer to that goal. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS. EVERY DONATION MATTERS. EVERY GIFT IS APPRECIATED.
