Great Thinks Annual Fund

As MAC celebrates its 15th anniversary and launches its second Great Thinks Annual Campaign, we hope to enhance the spirit of giving at MAC and further advance the school and its talented teachers. This year’s goal is 100% participation and $40,000. No gift is too small, and all gifts are appreciated.

We encourage you to become involved through participation in the Great Thinks Annual Fund by giving an amount that is meaningful for your family. You are also encouraged to take part in special events sponsored by the school. All gifts of time and money are important and appreciated.

While tuition dollars cover teacher salaries and benefits, Great Thinks allows us to go above and beyond by helping MAC meet specific strategic needs. At MAC, tuition is the revenue that our school must charge per student in order to offset the expenses necessary to run our school. While many established independent schools have endowments, investments, and large gifts that offset the cost of tuition, MAC is a young school that relies solely on tuition and fees for teacher salaries and benefits, Montessori materials, building mortgage and expenses, and state licensing requirements.

If you are considering a small, one time donation, please consider setting up an automatic monthly charge to your credit card as an alternative. If every family who gave $100 in the past would consider donating $20 on a monthly basis to the Great Thinks Annual Fund it would have a significant and positive impact on the campaign.

Thank you in advance for your support!
