The Annual Campaign


We’re Still Smiling….

Did you know? We might be wearing masks, but we’re still smiling! You can see it in our students eyes…You can feel it in the way they are learning with their hands. You can hear it in their voices during music class and when they gleefully call to their friends on the playground.  Behind the masks, Bala House students and teachers are smiling.

Why are we so happy? Maria Montessori taught us that children are innate learners who possess a natural curiosity for the world. During a time when so may schools are closing or have closed, Bala House students are learning and growing in our classrooms and our teachers are doing what they love.


We’re not out of the woods yet! We are asking for the continued support of our full community- past and present families, grandparents, the board of trustees and staff- during this challenging time. Our goal is to raise $35K before June 30th, 2022. Your gift will go towards covering the continued financial challenges of the COVID pandemic including the purchase of necessary PPE equipment and cleaning supplies.

Stock Transfer

A gift of appreciated securities, held for more than one year, may provide a more significant tax advantage than a cash gift. You avoid capital gains on the appreciation and receive a tax deduction for the stock’s fair market value. The value of the securities is the average from the high and low trading prices on the day your gift is transferred to Bala House.


The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) for businesses has expanded to include individual tax savings through the Special Purpose Entity (SPE) program.

Corporate Matching Gift Programs

If you or your spouse work for a company that matches charitable gifts to independent schools, the impact of your contribution can be doubled or even tripled. Ask your employer’s Human Resources department if they offer matching gifts. Return your company’s form along with your donation to Bala House.
