Each year, we ask our community to give to our Annual Fund. This year is special, and we need your support more than ever. So we've renamed our annual giving campaign The Heart of Jarrow Fund to reflect the importance of giving with your entire heart.
We are grateful to share that our campus is thriving and our children are very happy to be with their friends here at school. But as we continue to keep the safety of our families a priority, we've committed to reducing the number of children enrolled and have invested in many expensive renovations which make it possible for us to social distance, from the highest quality air purifiers to additional bathrooms. The bottom line: we need your help to sustain us through this challenging time. This year, your support is more than essential, it's critical to keeping Jarrow Montessori School afloat.
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 email@example.com for more information.
Colorado Tax Benefits allow you to donate 2X as much!
Thanks to the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit, you can give twice what you normally would, because you could be eligible to take 50% of your donation as a tax credit on your income taxes.
Here's an illustration of your true out-of-pocket cost of a donation:
Jarrow is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Please click contribution credit for more information. As always, please consult your tax advisor as everyone's situation varies.
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.
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.
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.
Thank You In Advance!
As you think about giving to Jarrow, we ask you to consider the ripple effect of a generous gift, and how it could make the difference for your child, for your family, and our entire community. Your participation, in any way, is meaningful and greatly appreciated.
