Annual Giving is a vital program designed to enhance portions of the annual costs of operating Hilltop Montessori while providing participating donors the opportunity to take tax deductions as allowed by law. As the name implies, the appeal is annual, and 2013 is our fourth year implementing our Annual Fund program. The annual giving program of Hilltop Montessori School has funded many wonderful projects.
Where Do the Funds Go?
The annual fund has provided for playground bikes and equipment, assembly of the PTO-donated greenhouse, 10 new laptops, Tonka trucks for the playground, the reading program for lower elementary, recycling bins for the hallway, seminars for teachers, CPR/first aid training for staff, Birmingham Festival of Arts training for teachers, carts for Spanish, computer equipment, new Spanish textbooks, garden beds, bird seed, edible school yard curriculum guides, rain barrels, compost and soil for gardens, top soil, bees for the hives, a new refrigerator for the kitchen, anti-virus software for the computers, a new preschool playground tunnel, new chairs in the office and much more!
