Quest Montessori School provides a strong academic foundation in a learning community that fosters individuality, encourages curiosity and exploration, develops innovative thinking and confidence, and demonstrates the values of collaboration all in a supportive, nurturing community. Giving to Quest is an investment in our mission and enriches the educational experience for all of our students.
Quest Annual Fund
The Quest Annual Fund is a campaign that runs yearly from September 1 - August 31 and impacts every member of our community. Each year Quest identifies specific projects or initiatives that will be underwritten through the Annual Fund. Gifts can be allocated toward dedicated funds or applied generally for areas of greatest need. Overall, the money raised from the Annual Fund provides our faculty with professional development opportunities and training, our students further access to enrichment activities and experiences, and our facility with up-to-date technology and appropriate campus development.
Gift Designation Areas
Your gift can illustrate your passion. Support what you love, or want to see more of, at Quest.
Demonstrate your financial support to Quest with an undesignated gift. The Head of School will determine where your gift will have the greatest impact.
Provide support to those students who would thrive with Montessori education but cannot otherwise attend Quest. Gifts in this area help to open the doors to a variety of academically qualified students in RI.
Faculty & Staff Development
Gifts in this area allow us to fully support a strong professional development program which has a direct impact on the quality of education our students receive.
Expand access and opportunities for students to express themselves through art, music, and theatre. Your gift in this area will ensure continued exceptional instruction for students at all levels.
Physical Education / Athletics
Provide the equipment and help to offset fees for the programming necessary to deliver quality physical education experiences, access to intramural teams and improved equipment and gear.
Outdoor Education / Service Learning
Offer each student an encounter to build skills for life, give back to the local community, and develop global awareness. Gifts in this area would support our agricultural programs, offer access to social service opportunities and help to expand our enrichment experiences.
Give Your Way
Quest encourages our community to choose the way of giving that suits your family best: from cash and securities to planned gifts. All are ways to make your contribution to Quest Montessori’s promising future.
Quest is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization so all gifts to our school are fully tax deductible.
Gifts of Cash
The majority of gifts made to Quest Montessori are made in the form of cash or check and offer a tax deduction in the full amount of the gift.
Quest can securely accept contributions from all major credit cards.
Rather than give all at once, spread your gift over a period of time through automated weekly or monthly withdrawals.
Make a Pledge
Commit to giving and pay at your pace. A pledged gift can be paid on the timetable of your choice: quarterly, monthly, weekly – you decide! A pledge can be made at any time but is due in full by June 30.
Gifts of Stock
With a gift of stock, particularly a gift of appreciated stock, you have the opportunity to provide support to Quest and to take advantage of significant tax benefits.
Help create the Quest Foundation by making a planned gift to Quest Montessori School. These gifts include: bequests, charitable gift annuities, designation of Quest Montessori School in your retirement and insurance plans, gifts of real estate, charitable reminder trusts and charitable lead trusts among others.
