The Scholarship Fund at WMS helps make Montessori education available to more children. The need for financial assistance tends to exceed the amount of scholarship funds available. WMS is committed to steadily increasing this fund so that the supply will keep pace with demand.
Contributions to the Scholarship Fund are often made as memorial gifts or to honor a particular person. This is a wonderful and lasting way to honor a teacher on his/her birthday or at the end of school. Gifts have also been given to honor new babies or older children on their birthdays.
Donna Baker Endowment Fund
The first graduating class of sixth graders created an Endowment Fund in 1999 as a lasting gift for the school. The creation of this fund provided them with the opportunity to leave behind a legacy that will grow and last as long as there is a Waco Montessori School. In November 2008, the Donna Baker Endowment was created in honor of Donna’s 25 years of service at WMS. The Endowment Fund helps WMS to maintain financial independence and to continue to provide a quality education to the children in the Waco community.
