HOW YOUR DONATION/PLEDGE MAKES A DIFFERENCE
“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”
A unified community is essential to Omni Montessori School. Every year, the Board of Trustees and Administration kick-off the Annual Giving Campaign to help bridge the gap between tuition and the operating budget. Like most independent schools, tuition and fees alone do not fully cover Omni’s financial obligations. Therefore, donations made through the Annual Giving Campaign have a direct and powerful impact.
Gifts made to the Annual Giving Campaign directly impact our greatest assets – our STUDENTS and GUIDES. These areas include:
- Financial aid for students and their families - Over $130,000 was awarded in financial aid to support 26 students for the 2021-2022 school year.
- Improvements in our classrooms and outdoor learning environments - recent improvements include new picnic tables, outdoor umbrellas, and classroom furniture.
- Campus maintenance at Blakeney and Waxhaw to keep the facilities operating and safe for students, faculty, and staff - in the past year, ionizers were added to each HVAC unit to improve overall air quality.
- Employee professional development to bring new and innovative ideas into the classroom - in 2020-2021, faculty participated in an introduction to Anti-bias, Anti-Racist education. For 2021-2022, faculty will engage in the North Carolina Association of Independent Schools on Cultivating Communities of Belonging.
Our gratitude to the Omni community is immense. We see your contributions in action every single day. They enhance every aspect of the learning, programs, and growth our students experience.

The reason why
Omni Montessori School was founded on the vision, pledge, and philanthropic dedication of a community committed to empowering children through the faithful teachings of Maria Montessori in the Charlotte area. Since its start, the school has expanded from a singular building with two classrooms to two campuses serving children ages 3-15 years. The generosity and financial support of our parents and friends since 1985 has allowed Omni Montessori School to grow and remain strong while keeping tuition reasonable to serve as many families as possible.
If you are a parent, friend, alumni, faculty/staff, or someone who appreciates the idea of helping Montessori schools be successful, we encourage you to learn more about Omni Montessori School and consider giving to our Annual Giving Campaign.
