In order to fund our thriving Montessori programs, Many Rivers Montessori relies on the ongoing financial generosity of its families and extended community. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (EIN 46-3952689). All donations are tax-deductible. Below are several ways to give to our growing school!

The Many Rivers ANNUAL Fund: Make a difference in education in the Twin Ports

Many Rivers Montessori is a learning environment that fosters independent, academically prepared, and socially responsible citizens who will be lifelong learners and problem solvers. We provide an ideal learning environment that focuses on the whole child during each stage of development from toddlerhood through adolescence — the benefits of which last a lifetime.

This is the heart of Many Rivers’ vision, our mission statement. MRM is bold and dynamic, undertaking to offer highest quality Montessori education to Twin Ports families with children ages sixteen months through eighth grade.

Your donation will make a critical difference. It will: help make up the difference between what is charged for tuition and the actual cost of a Many Rivers education; contribute to professional development for our wonderful staff who guide and care for your children; supply our classrooms with beautiful and intriguing materials; and increase our school’s economic diversity by supporting our need-based financial aid program.

Many Rivers needs your support. Please give generously today!

Our pledge form can be found here. For your convenience, Many Rivers Montessori also has its own page on GiveMN.org. (Please note that GiveMN.org keeps a 4.9 per cent fee from your online donation.) For more information, please contact our Head of School, Mark Niedermier.

Thank you for helping to make a positive difference in the daily lives of our students!

Other Ways to Help financially

The following are simple ways to help MRM receive funds. If you have any questions, please contact our Head of School, Mark Niedermier, at 218.464.5570.

  • Amazon Smile: MRM is now officially part of Amazon Smile. It's super easy to find us on the site, and 0.5% of all eligible purchases will be donated to MRM.  You shop, Amazon gives. If you shop Amazon anyway, it is totally worth taking the two seconds needed to sign up. Learn more here: http://smile.amazon.com/

  • Box Tops for Education: Save your Box Tops and send them to school with your child in an envelope or ziplock bag.  Each one collected is worth 10 cents (some even more) that will help support MRM's classrooms.  They are on many products that you most likely purchase already.  Check out www.boxtops4education.com for more information. The elementary students are working on this as a continuing project.

Thank you for supporting MRM in these everyday ways!
