Ways to Give

Every gift, large or small, makes a significant difference to Richmond Montessori School. Your gift helps advance our mission of inspiring academic excellence and nurturing human potential, and there are a number of ways to give:

Annual Fund
The easiest and most expedient way to make a contribution is through a gift to the Annual Fund. Donations may be in the form of cash, check or by credit card.

Matching Funds
To increase the impact of your financial contribution, consider applying for “matching” funds if your employer offers this program.

Stocks
Other gifts that provide a beneficial impact to the school are stocks and appreciated securities and bequests. Call the Advancement Office at 804-741-0040 for details.

Special Interests
Gifts specific to a donor’s philanthropic values are also welcome. Please contact the Advancement Office to discuss special interests or projects or to request a list of specific opportunities that support an identified need at Richmond Montessori School.

Endowments
Donations to established endowments at Richmond Montessori School are always appreciated. The school’s current endowments are the Della Mae Reese Jefferson Scholarship Fund, the Wise Family Scholarship, the TEAM Endowment, the Capital Facilities Endowment, The General Endowment, and the Martha Mabey Scholarship Fund.  Endowment contributions may be directed at the time of the donation.

Your gift may also provide a tax advantage.
