Greetings Quest Community,
I am the proud grandparent of a Quest Montessori Upper Elementary student, who joined the program three years ago. Living 90 minutes away, our involvement with Quest has been limited, but rewarding. We have witnessed our granddaughter’s curiosity as a student deepen through the Montessori method, and Quest’s wonderful and caring staff has allowed her to grow and learn through unique experiences. She is fortunate to attend Quest, and has benefited greatly.
Given the impact that Quest has had on our granddaughter, my wife and I feel that every child should have the same opportunity to learn and experience the Montessori approach to education, and appreciate that the Quest Annual Fund is designed to support this interest. Yearly, we make a commitment to donate knowing that it underwrites areas of need, including Tuition Assistance. Our gifts support those students who would benefit from a Quest education, but for whom it may be out of reach.
A community of diverse experiences can enrich the school, and is important to our family. What is important to you? What does your family want to grow and support at this wonderful, little school? This fall, Kathy pointed to projects that would be driven forward by the Annual Fund; interior completion of the barn with sound panels and stage risers, fresh new playground equipment for either of our two playgrounds, materials to establish a toddler play space outside of that classroom, and support for completion of our greenhouse and agriculture programs.
Because I know how special the Quest community is, I am excited to share with you a giving challenge in the form of a 10K Matching Campaign for our final weeks. Now through June 7, all gifts made to the Annual Fund will be matched up to $10,000: doubling your personal contribution, and your impact.
Please join me in reflecting upon what Quest means to your family, and vow to support it. Together, we can end this year’s Annual Fund with a sincere commitment to its goals, and make the most of this generous, additional boost. More hands make less work. Let’s take those passions and turn them into action.
