Why We Give…

MMS is a place that is populated with a mix of students who embody a rich diversity of language, culture, religion, and race. But everyone shares in a commonality which is that particular mix of intellectual curiosity and adventurous spirit that holds the promise of glimpsing new horizons and making new discoveries.

—Maureen Ragalie


Milwaukee Montessori School has a tradition of preparing students to enter the world as independent, self-directed, civically engaged individuals who are committed to life-long learning. To continue to provide this exceptional experience to all of our students, Milwaukee Montessori School relies on the MMS Fund, our annual giving program.

MMS Fund donations support all aspects of student life including enhancing our academic and athletic programs, expanding curriculum, continuing green initiatives, maintaining facilities as well as providing professional development for our faculty.

Because the MMS Fund is a necessary fundraising component, all student families are asked to give a gift each year. These gifts are fully tax-deductible and every gift—regardless of size—matters and makes a difference. Milwaukee Montessori School strives for 100% participation to demonstrate to foundations and corporations the strength of parent and faculty commitment to our mission.

Together, we can achieve our important fundraising goals.
