Giving Opportunities, Annual Giving & Fundraising
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 2014 is our fourth year implementing our Annual Fund program. The annual giving program of Hilltop Montessori School has funded many wonderful projects.

Are there any other opportunities to assist the school with giving?
Hilltop Montessori’s Deep Roots Gardening Dinner Fundraiser is an annual event that allows our stakeholders to gather to celebrate the school’s success and also enjoy fabulous, fresh cuisine from the school’s gardens. This year’s fundraiser will be held on Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 6 p.m at the Stone’s Throw in the Town of Mt Laurel. This adults only event features a cocktail hour, a wonderful dinner and a very entertaining live auction, courtesy of Jack Granger of Granger, Thagard & Associates. Sponsorship and ticket information will be available soon. This year’s event will be special as the plans/design of our Phase Three addition will be unveiled to the public.
