Your Support Matters

As a dynamic organization, AMS stands poised to make and take advantage of inroads through which to champion Montessori. But even as we expand our programs and take on new ventures, we’re mindful that membership dues cover just a fraction of our costs. AMS relies on you—our members and friends—to support the programs and services that are defining quality education in the 21st century. Your tax-deductible contribution is an investment in our children and youth, the stewards of tomorrow.
