The Heart of Jarrow Annual Fund

Our teachers and families are truly the heart of Jarrow Montessori, and nothing could have proved this more than having to close our campus last spring. It was one of the hardest things we’ve ever had to do and we are so thrilled to have our community back together again.

Each year, we ask our community to give to our Annual Fund. This year is special, and we need your support more than ever. We are asking each family to please consider a donation at the $600 level, or any level that feels right for you. Together, we can help Jarrow sustain and thrive during this unusual time in our 56-year history. Thank you, as always, for your continued support and please don’t hesitate to contact Shannon at for more information.

Your donation may qualify for the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit which allows you to deduct 50% of your donation from your Colorado income tax bill. Please consult your tax advisor for more details.

Why Montessori?

Providing your child with a Montessori education is an incredible gift that builds upon itself over the years into adulthood. In Montessori, like nowhere else, students gain skills such as collaboration and the ability to work effectively with others. They are thoughtful in their decision-making, innovative, and through daily practices of respect, gain foundational tools to problem solve with the end goal of finding a peaceful resolution.

These are values practiced each and every day in Montessori. Our graduates go into the world embracing their responsibilities as global citizens and explore ways to make contributions that have a positive impact beyond themselves.

Why Give?

At Jarrow, we maintain an intentional gap between the cost of tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. This allows us to offer moderate tuitions AND provide the highest quality Montessori education. Your gift will directly support our beautiful learning environments, special programs, faculty development, and tuition assistance.

Through the years, we have been proud to count alumni, trustees, parents, family members, grandparents, extended family members, and the entire staff of Jarrow as the heartbeat of the Jarrow Annual Fund’s success. We ask that you join us this year to help us surpass our fundraising goals and exceed our dreams. All gifts to the Jarrow Annual Fund are 100% tax-deductible.

How Much?

It is our sincere hope that you will make a gift that is meaningful for your family, and that makes you feel great about supporting the school that we love. Our projected gap between education each child and our budget is approximately $1,000. This year, we are humbly asking for $600 because we know it's been a tough year for us all. You can make your donation as a small reoccurring gift that adds up (monthly, quarterly, or annually) or as a one-time gift.


The Heart of Jarrow Fund runs for our entire fiscal year, August 1 - July 31. However, our goal is to have 100% community participation before the end of this calendar year! Although our campaign kicks off in the fall, we accept donations at any time of the year.

The Tax Benefits

Jarrow is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations to Jarrow are tax-deductible. Through the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit, your gift may qualify for a sizable tax credit. Please click contribution credit for more information.

As you think about giving to Jarrow, we ask you to consider the ripple effect of a generous gift, and how it makes a difference in the lives of not only your own family, but our entire community. Your participation, in any way, is meaningful and Jarrow’s present and future will thrive thanks to you.
