The Need for Giving

Our goal to keep tuition costs down so that as many children as possible benefit from a Montessori education means tuition alone does not cover all our school’s financial needs. To maintain the highest quality educational experience possible for all students today and in the future, Annual Giving is a key component to Bala House’s accessibility and affordability.

Annual Giving Supports Programs Vital to Our Mission

Tuition Assistance Fund – Diversity – both cultural and socioeconomic – has been and remains vital to our mission. To that end, funding our Tuition Assistance Fund has been an annual priority since Bala House’s 21st birthday. This fund allows Bala House to offer $70,000 in tuition assistance every year to approximately 11 families (13 children) who cannot otherwise afford private preschool and kindergarten Montessori educations for their children.

Teacher Enrichment Fund – The Teacher Enrichment Fund was established in 2009 to support Bala House’s most valuable resources: its teachers. This fund is restricted solely for staff compensation and professional development. Bala House is committed to teacher enrichment and the core value that great teachers make great schools, which directly benefit the students. Honor Bala House’s outstanding staff with a gift to the Teacher Enrichment Fund!

Facility Improvements – Facility enhancements are necessary to provide a physical environment equivalent to the first-rate Montessori education we offer and are absolutely vital to the future of Bala House.

To Make a Stock Transfer

A gift of appreciated securities, held for more than one year, may provide a greater tax advantage than a gift of cash and is easy to make. Capital gains on the appreciation are avoided, and you receive a tax deduction for the stock’s fair market value. Securities will be valued at the average of the high and low trading prices on the day your gift is transferred to Bala House. To make a gift in the form of a stock transfer, please contact our Marketing and Development Director at to find out how.
