Making Great Things Happen
Charter public schools like Fort Collins Montessori School (FCMS) are built by impassioned families and community leaders who come together to offer something that traditional schools do not. The families and friends involved in the early years of charter schools, like FCMS, are the initiators—they are the backbone and driving force to ensure a school’s success.
YOU are these families and friends.
For many, FCMS is a dream school for children. Montessori ignites drive, is a safe haven, and incorporates creativity and kindness in its curriculum. Whatever your reason for supporting FCMS, there is no denying that it is an exceptional opportunity for children in the Poudre School District.
However, exceptional opportunities can come at a cost.
For the 2016-17 school year, FCMS received approximately 70% of its funding from grants and the state of Colorado. The remaining gap was met with Preschool and Kindergarten (half day is free) tuition, grassroots fundraising efforts, and gifts from parents, friends and philanthropists. Aside from our day-to-day operating budget, over the next few years FCMS will need to raise over one million dollars to finance land and a building to accommodate our growth.
