Supporting Oak Farm

Tall Oak Fund 

Oak Farm Montessori is proud to offer an exceptional curriculum for ages Infants through Middle School, and soon High School as well.  We offer over $700,000 in tuition grants and subsidies every year, so parents have access to education opportunities for their children. Still, we are a private school and encourage parent, grandparent, and community involvement through gifts and donations.

The Tall Oak Fund supports our annual operating budget, and benefits educational curriculum, professional development and supports the many learning opportunities available to our students. Our largest school fundraiser, The Tall Oak Gala, will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2018. The Tall Oak Gala is an evening designed to bring Oak Farm family and friends together to celebrate our community and show financial support. Please visit out Tall Oak Gala page for additional information.

Lead the Way – Capital Expansion Campaign

Over the past 17 years, Oak Farm has been fortunate to have the support of the Dekko Foundation to off-set the cost of tuition and underwrite capital improvements. This support continues with the recent $10 million capital grant from the Foundation toward the current campus expansion. However, there are some remaining costs involved with this next phase that will need to be funded by others. It is here we must do our part, as members of the Oak Farm Community, to Lead the Way to help write the next chapter of the Oak Farm story.

Over the next three years, we have a goal to secure over $100,000 in  commitments from the Oak Farm faculty, board, and families.  At Oak Farm, our motto has long been, “It’s not what you give, but that you give.”  We ask that you thoughtfully consider participating in the our capital expansion campaign. Each and every gift, no matter how large or small is essential and greatly appreciated.

Should you have any questions regarding your donation or Lead the Way, please do not hesitate to contact Megan O’Sullivan, Head of School or Nicole Lowe, Community Relations Liaison at 260.897.4270.  Thank you for considering Oak Farm Montessori in your gift giving plan.

To participate, please return your completed Participation Promise form to Oak Farm Montessori School, Attn: Nicole Lowe, 502 Lemper Road, Avilla, IN 46710. We are offering many payment options to meet your needs.
