We Did It!
Thanks to your generous financial support over the last four years, Fort Collins Montessori School is in a financial position that has allowed it to secure financing for a property and building. We couldn’t have done it without you and look forward to opening the doors of our long-term facility in the Fall of 2020!
Another Big Give season is here and we hope we can count on your continued support in Building the Future! It will continue to take each of us, building piece-by-piece, with contributions, time, friendship and support. We are a part of a committed community—a family in a way—a school developing individuals for bright futures!
Through The Big Give 2019, we are striving to raise money to build the future playgrounds of our permanent facility!

Space to Play!
This year, all Big Give gifts will go to the building of outdoor play spaces that the Montessori method holds so dear. With our building becoming a reality, would you consider donating to the development of the FCMS playgrounds?
This year’s Big Give challenge is 100% FCMS family participation and $50,000 total raised! Our collective buy-in is sure to inspire other individuals, businesses and philanthropists in our community and beyond to Build the Future of FCMS with us!
If a lump sum gift is not feasible at this time, would you consider a recurring monthly gift? At the end of the day all contributions—big and small—are important and valued!
Other ways you can support The Big Give are by passing it on to friends and family (Go Fund Me makes campaign social sharing super easy!) and checking with your employer
to see if they will match your gift! Contact your HR Department to find out. As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable donations are tax deductible.
