Annual Fund 2018-19


Total Raised: 92%

\We are excited to announce the creation of The Fund for Villa di Maria! Pearl Vanderwall, who studied Montessori methodology with Dr. Maria Montessori, founded Villa di Maria 51 years ago with the mission to provide affordable authentic Montessori education for all.

While we hold ourselves to the highest standard, we are also committed to keeping tuition rates stable.  Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child at Villa di Maria. We know, however, that we can count on our community to keep Pearl’s vision of accessible Montessori alive!

To this end, we have an EGGStraordinary opportunity! If 90% of staff, board members and families make a gift that is meaningful to them*, the school will celebrate by building a chicken coop! 

Please consider a gift of any size to The Fund for Villa di Maria. You can pledge now and pay later. If you would like to avoid next year’s appeal and help the school plan for the future, consider pledging for this school year and next! In addition to gifts made by check or credit, VdM is also now able to accept gifts of stock.

If we all COOPerate, the children will have yet another EGGcellent learning opportunity on campus.

Thank you for your consideration.


In partnership,

Jade Venditte
Director of Development, Diversity and Inclusion

PS. Why does a chicken coop only have two doors?... Because if it had four doors it would be a chicken sedan!
