WAYS TO SUPPORT SGM

Secret Garden Montessori offers several ways for our community to contribute to fundraising and to donate gifts directly to classrooms:

Gifts to the Secret Garden Montessori Annual Fundraising Campaign:

This year, we are excited to begin our Fundraising Campaign on Giving Tuesday. Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 to replenish the SGM scholarship fund. All funds raised will go directly to families in need of financial assistance. Your donation will give a child the opportunity to receive a holistic education at Secret Garden Montessori.

 

Secret Garden Montessori is proud to guide the education of 35 students, ages 18 months through 6 years of age. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, SGM is one of the most affordable Montessori schools in the area and is dedicated to providing a holistic education to a culturally and socioeconomically diverse community of families. Secret Garden Montessori's high quality and affordability is made possible by generous contributions of time, hard work, and donations from individuals and organizations throughout Hunterdon County and beyond.  Your tax-deductible donation for the 2021-22 SGM fundraiser will replenish our scholarship fund, and can be applied to either the 2021 or 2022 tax year, depending on when you donate.

Starting in February, our fundraising campaign continues with an exciting MATCHING DONOR opportunity!

With your support, SGM has raised a total of $6,000 to replenish the school scholarship fund. To reach our goal of $10,000, SGM has partnered with a generous donor that is willing to match every dollar earned up to $3,000, between February 14th and 28th, 2022.

How does our matching grant work?

 

Make a donation of any amount and a matching gift of the same amount will be made in your honor. This means, every dollar donated will be instantly doubled- turning $25 into $50! The matching grant ends on February 28th, or when the full $3,000 has been donated. Give what you can- no amount is too small. It all adds up to make a huge difference in someone’s life.

 

Donations can be made directly to the school via check or by clicking the donate button below.

 

Gifts to the Classrooms:

Our teachers create wish lists that you can contribute to fulfilling a donation of any amount. View the Primary classroom wish list by clicking here. View the Sprouts Classroom wish list here.

Gifts via Shopping:

Secret Garden Montessori earns funds when supporters shop on Amazon.com. Amazon will donate a portion of the sales total to the school; all you have to do is shop!

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon.com that allows customers to enjoy the same wide selection of products and convenient shopping on the site while earning money for our school. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases to Secret Garden Montessori when it is selected by customers. Simply visit smile.amazon.com and login to your existing Amazon account. In the search box, search for “Secret Garden Montessori” and be sure to select the school located in Frenchtown, NJ. Once you click “select” you are all set to shop as you normally would. Please remember to log in to the AmazonSmile address each time you shop on amazon.com. Your selection of Secret Garden Montessori will be saved at that login; using the traditional Amazon.com login site will not earn funds for the school.

Non- Monetary Ways to Donate:

Use your social network to speak out! Sharing a charity's posts to your social channels is a great way to amplify the organizations message.

Leave SGM a review on Google or Facebook! Sharing your experience helps new families to get a true sense of the beauty of Secret Garden. 

Donate your birthday! Asking friends and family to make birthday donations on your behalf instead of having them purchase gifts is a simple and easy way to give back.
