Off to a Great Start
We are three weeks into the 2021 Big Give! We extend a big thank you to our FCMS families who have made their contribution and shared the Big Give with friends and family. It is heartwarming to see gifts coming in from grandparents, aunts, uncles and family friends! Further proof that Montessori is making a difference in the lives of the children they dearly love.
As of March 7, we are at 14% of our goal of $40,000.
Two Challenges for Parents of FCMS
Challenge #1: If each family were to give $200 per child, that would raise $34,600—putting us just $5,400 shy or our $40,000 goal! That is ALL it would take! This year, the giving season spans nearly three months. The intention behind the big window is to provide an opportunity to give over time. If breaking up your gift into smaller, monthly donations is easier, please take advantage of this.
Challenge #2: Does your employer match charitable donations? We challenge you to ask! Companies of all sizes match donations their employees make to nonprofits because it’s an easy, structured way for them to support good work in their communities. March is our Matching Month during the Big Give. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Check in with your company today to see if they want to match your donation to FCMS!”
