The Near North Fund




What is the Near North Fund?

The Near North Fund is an annual appeal which relies on the generosity of alumni, current families, and faculty & staff to bridge the gap between tuition and operational expenses. In particular, the annual appeal funds instructional materials, program support, technology, professional development, and facility maintenance.

As with all peer independent schools, the funds raised through an annual appeal are essential to supplementing the resources necessary to carry out the Montessori mission of educating every student to reach their inherent potential. 

This year’s goal is 100% parent participation. Please join us in supporting the 2022-23 Near North Fund. Every single gift, regardless of size, is valued and appreciated.
