Help us in this time of need.
Great Work Montessori is a Jeffco Charter Public school in its third year with a mission to support all children in becoming joyful and courageous agents of peace, builders of community, and creators of justice and beauty. Our school is a neighborhood hub not only for child-centered learning and growth, but for community engagement, distribution of local resources, and deeply enriching relationships. Each week, we distribute food to families in need and run a free store, providing families access to free clothing, seasonal necessities, and dry goods. In addition, we open our doors to the community for a monthly dinner and family education gathering. We want to continue this work, and we need your help.
As a result of COVID-19 closures, we are experiencing a loss of revenue and are facing significant budget cuts and decreased state funding for the coming school year. We know that this is a difficult and uncertain time for all of us. We owe immense gratitude to the families who have continued to pay tuition during this school closure, and we recognize that the opportunity to give is not available to everyone.
Our goal in this campaign is to ensure that our classrooms continue to be fully staffed by well-prepared adults and our community continues to receive the supports needed. In addition to hiring and retaining amazing staff, your donation could enable the purchase of:
$25 can pay for pencils and notebooks fora student...Self-expression in written form - Priceless.
$50 can pay for a set of early reader books...the gift of reading - Priceless.
$100 keep the lights and heat/ac on for one day...a comfortable place to learn - Priceless.
$250 can pay the trash and recycle bill for the month...cleaning up after distributing 150 Family Food boxes a week - Priceless.

Please support our school to continue its great work in the community by offering a donation. What better cause to which to offer all or a portion of our national stimulus money! Words cannot adequately thank our community for their help. Without you, we are alone.
