What is montessori education fund, inc (mefi)?
The Montessori House Education Fund (MEFI) is a public charity 501(c) (3) organization, qualified by the IRS to receive tax-deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under the tax code.
All proceeds raised support the MEFI and funds allocated to:
- Community Outreach
- Professional Development (supplements out-of-state conferences).
- Tuition Assistance (to help bridge the financial gap during temporary hardships).
All contributions to this fund support educational services for students and faculty and are tax-deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code.
Special projects that spring from the minds of children and parents are fun and fulfilling pursuits. We have parent committees to assist and oversee these ventures. Occasionally a committee will ask that a spirit night or special event be held to help provide materials for projects. The purpose of each event will be clearly stated and the sponsoring committee will have oversight.
Each year, the School holds an Annual Giving Campaign, accepting donations of time, talents and monitory contributions from parents, local businesses and the general public. 100% of proceeds go directly to the Montessori House Education Fund, Inc.
Through the services provided by MEFI, families, students, and teachers can receive educational benefits that would not be possible from tuition revenue only.
Legacy Walls are being created in celebration of the inaugural year for the Elementary School building. Children’s artwork (or handprints) will be created on ceramic tiles to adorn the walls of either Montessori House for Children, and/or the Montessori House Elementary School. Families are able to purchase a tile (artwork or handprint) designed by their child.
