When we talk about participation, what we mean is the percentage of potential donors, usually parents, who make a gift to the Aidan Fund in the current fiscal year, which runs from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.
Strong participation by families and other key stakeholders in the Aidan Fund is important. It demonstrates that our community supports and believes in the mission and vision of Aidan Montessori School. It also has important implications when it comes to requesting grants and loans from outside organizations; many corporations, banks, governmental agencies, and foundations consider parent participation rates before agreeing to support to the school, whether through donations, grants, or even loans.
Each year, we strive for 100% parent participation and with your support we can get closer to our goal. Any gift that is personally meaningful to your family is meaningful to Aidan Montessori School.
