The More We Reap, The More We Grow!

Sunny Hollow Montessori’s 2021/2022 Annual Giving Campaign

Many independent schools add an additional 8% to tuition to cover depreciation and maintenance.  To maintain lower costs to families, Sunny Hollow does not do this. Our Annual Fund first covers the tuition gap and then supports a Special Need/ Special Project.

Last year’s campaign raised a total of $107,133.00, with gifts ranging from $4 to $20,000. Donations were crucial to keeping our community together, providing Financial Aid for families who faced unexpected financial challenges due to COVID. 

This year, our Special Project support setting up an Eagle Cam and a Garden Redesign, which will feature:

  • Intentional spaces and seating for an outdoor classroom, community gathering, and socializing 
  • A stage, sensory gardens, a large chalk wall, boulders, and logs for exploration

Our total Annual Fund goal was $120,00.00. Once we reached $80,000.00, all donations supported the Garden Redesign!
