The MSR Annual Fund

Why Give to The MSR Annual Fund?

The Montessori School of Raleigh was founded on the vision, dedication, and philanthropic commitment of only a handful of families who envisioned a school where children are at the center.

Today, your gift to The MSR Annual Fund honor our visionary legacy and confirms the enduring value of a school committed to preparing students to be engineers of their own fulfilling lives. The MSR Annual Fund sustains the school's excellence by providing revenue for program costs not funded by tuition.

Since 1974, The Montessori School of Raleigh has committed to a progressive and enduring education.

Today, our families make a lasting impression on students and the MSR community through the MSR Annual Fund. Please consider your own transformational gift today!
