Giving Tuesday

Help Give the Gift of Education

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. On May 5th, 2020 we come together as a global community…

To give. To help. To thank. To heal.

Here at VMS, we are continuing to uphold our mission of ensuring access to quality Montessori education for our children. Through #GivingTuesdayNow, we are raising funds that will help assist Island families reeling from the devastating impact of the pandemic. If you have been waiting for the right time to make a gift, this is it.

Annual Fund

VMS has prospered due to a strong heritage of giving.  Through our families’ time, energy, and financial support, we have been able to offer exceptional programs to many students for more than 40 years!  Our Annual Fund is made up of gifts from parents, faculty, staff, board members, alumni, grandparents, and friends.  Contributions through the years have allowed us to continually update classroom materials, equip classrooms, and maintain a faculty composed of educators of the highest quality.

As with most private schools, tuition alone does not cover all the expenses of our school.  Our Annual Fund provides the support needed to close the gap between tuition and costs of educating our students.  Your tax-deductible donation to the Annual Fund has an immense and immediate impact on our programming.  Contributions of any size are significant.  Even the smallest gift is an indication of your support.

Truckin’ MV

Each fall, VMS hosts its annual Truckin’ MV event for children of all ages to visit Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School and get behind the wheel of fire trucks, police cruisers, cherry pickers, and more. The interactive family event allows children an opportunity to see, touch, and explore big trucks and vehicles from the community. They also have the chance to meet and talk with the people who use big trucks and vehicles every day.

Big Night Out

VMS “Big Night Out” is the school’s largest annual fundraiser held each spring.  Featuring great live music, food and company, attendees have the opportunity to bid on wonderful auction items with proceeds going to support the school.

Tickets for all of our events may be purchased at the door.
