We need your help supporting future Montessori Teachers! Help us to establish new scholarships for new SIMS trainees who need some extra financial support.
Anyone can contribute! Did you know that the State of Arizona has a wonderful opportunity for tax payers to make contributions to a Qualified Charitable Organization? Did you know that your donation can be taken as a dollar-for-dollar tax credit? Your contribution will be used to benefit qualified low income candidates for Montessori teacher training at SIMS and will enhance access and diversity of ethnic, cultural, and social backgrounds among students.
Contributions made prior to April 15, 2020 can be claimed on your 2019 State taxes.
The maximum credit allowed is $800 for Married, filing joint or $400 filing Single or married filing separate. This is a separate tax credit from the Public School Tax Credit or Individual Tax Credit.

Montessori Charity Foundation began in 2017 as a Non-Profit 501c3 to provide scholarships to families that desired a high quality Montessori environment for their children.
In 2019, the organization was granted the authorization to accept funds as a Student Tuition Organization and Qualified Charitable Organization, by the Arizona Department of Revenue. As a Student Tuition Organization, MCF provides funds directly to select schools with qualifying students of all ages.
MCF believes that a Montessori education provides children an opportunity to reach their full potential.
Montessori Charity Foundation is an approved Qualified Charitable Organization.
