Support CMEC

Our Funds

At CMEC, we are passionate about making sure our inclusive community, cutting edge approach, and intentionally prepared environments nurture and promote compassionate, conscientious, and curious life-long learners. The Impact Fund directly enhances each of these areas by addressing our most pressing projects. These projects, such as the improvements made through past years’ campaigns including a new natural play space for our infants and toddlers, new data cabling, new phone system, equipping our gymnasium with updated lighting and a sound system, taking our teachers to the American Montessori conference in Washington DC, and enhanced safety features such as lighting, cameras, fencing and blinds, fall well outside our tuition budget. Your past contributions have made these much-needed improvements a reality. This year’s Impact Fund, more than ever, is important for the continued success of our school and our students during these unprecedented times. Your contribution empowers our students to change the world in ways big and small. The impact of your gift not only enhances the experiences of our students and families today but for many years to come. It doesn’t get more impactful than that.

Fund the Need

Founded in 1984, Columbus Montessori continues to be the premier provider of Montessori education to a diverse community of students ages six weeks to sixth grade in central Ohio. Each year, Columbus Montessori provides over $500,000 of financial assistance to families because we know that potential is not determined by zip code.
