Support MDS

Helping us Reach Beyond Our Best


The Board of Directors at Montessori Day School of Brooklyn strives to support the present and long-term success of our school through a strategic planning process. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and beyond tuition, we accept donations to further support the school community and our teachers.


Your donations are tax deductible!


Our fundraising goes to several priorities, including:

  • Expanding our Tuition Assistance program to help more families afford MDS

  • Additional teacher development (primarily Montessori training)

  • Additional enrichment activities (e.g., children’s drumming and dance workshops)

Ways to donate:

  • Donate directly via Paypal

  • Expand our village. Create a Facebook fundraiser

  • Set up your Amazon Smile settings before you next shop on Amazon (no charge!)

  • Download MakeMeSmile. MakeMeSmile is a Chrome extension that automatically helps ensure that your Amazon purchase can be correctly attributed to Amazon Smile, a charitable program.

  • Shop at our School Store, and rep MDS with pride.

  • Choose MDS as a donation option if your company participates in Benevity Causes. This is an online charitable giving portal for the employees of participating large companies to use as a way to direct funds to the causes they care about. 


Looking for other ways to add value to our school? We also welcome parent involvement on our PTA or Board of Directors. There are so many benefits to being on the Board, including:

  • Working  with a team of dynamic Brooklyn parents from lots of backgrounds and industries... we even have a fun Slack group!

  • Honing your leadership skills

  • Picking up new skills and knowledge

  • Doing great things for our community!

  • Audit Committee

  • Governance Committee

  • Communications Committee
