The MSNV Fund supports initiatives which allow us to fulfill our MSNV mission and provide our children with a rich, diverse environment and high-quality Montessori education. The MSNV Fund runs from July 1-June 30 each year. We strive for 100% participation from the MSNV Board of Trustees, our faculty, staff and parent body to The MSNV Fund. From training teachers to beefing up learning materials, the MSNV Fund directly impacts students.
Your gift to The MSNV Fund enriches your child’s experience at school. As a private institution, MSNV depends on a number of sources for financial support. Gifts to The MSNV Fund allow MSNV to expand the Montessori experience for every student, through improvements in infrastructure, materials, teaching techniques, parent support and learning opportunities. By providing additional resources in all these areas, we are able to provide an exceptional Montessori experience for your child.
MSNV welcomes all gifts, no matter the amount. MSNV strives for 100% participation in the Annual Fund, not only because it sends a powerful message that our entire MSNV community stands behind our mission, but also because it gives MSNV the flexibility to seize on mission supporting opportunities that enable our program to thrive.
Gifts can be made online or through cash, checks, credit cards, stock or securities. If you or a family member is a federal employee you can designate a gift to MSNV in the CFC. Please contact 703-992-0255.
The MSNV Leadership Circle is composed of individuals who give $600 or more to The MSNV Fund. We have several Leadership Circle Clubs: Outdoor Nature Nurturers ($600- $1,199); Pink Tower Builders ($1,200- $ 2,399); Bead Chain Benefactors ($2,400-$ 5,999) and Practical Life Leaders ($6,000+). You can see all MSNV Fund Giving Circles here.
If you wish to make a gift to The MSNV Fund in honor of a teacher or in memory of someone special, you may do so at any time. MSNV will send a card to your honoree or to the family, announcing your thoughtful gift. Donors to The MSNV Fund will receive a timely acknowledgement letter to retain with their records.
Please be assured that all individual donation information is held confidential and is limited to a small group of individuals at MSNV. We only provide aggregate donor information in our Annual Report.
The MSNV Head of School in conjunction with the MSNV Board of Trustees determines the needs of the school based upon the objectives laid out in our five-year Strategic Plan. Resources are allocated accordingly. If a gift is designated to a certain area, the gift will be used as requested. If a gift is not designated, it will go toward our areas of greatest need.
