Fundraising

The Montessori School Rochester PTO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises funds to support the students of MSR to provide assistance for educational and/or recreational needs.

Where does the fundraising money go?  This depends on the project or need.  Some fundraisers focus on a specific need such as teacher education over the summer or printers for the classrooms, others pay for the “free” events that our families and community enjoy.  Portions of funds may contribute to the “general fund” which covers miscellaneous  expenses that come up throughout the year.

 

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH COMMUNITY PROGRAMS  

Throughout the year, the PTO may host fundraising events such as 50/50 raffles, silent auctions, item sales, sponsored events in partnership with local businesses as well as accepting monetary and in-kind donations designated towards a specific area.

The PTO is also involved with on-going fundraising that requires asking for no money and just a little effort on the part of the MSR community.  Together we can make great things happen!
