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 can lead and are at the center.


Today, your gift to The MSR Annual Fund honors 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.


For 45 years, and for all the right reasons, The Montessori School of Raleigh has committed to a progressive and enduring education.


Today, for all the right reasons, our families make a lasting impression on students and the MSR community through The MSR Annual Fund. Please consider joining one of our giving levels for the 2019-2020 year! Thank you for your gift.
