Support Us:

With your help, we grow a better world, by choice.

Supporting Greene Towne means growing and building an exceptional learning environment for our children’s most important years.

It also means growing a rich and diverse community that spans the past, present and beautiful future.

Choosing to support us is a wonderful gift in itself, and there are many ways to contribute directly to the bright future of GTMS and our students.

Each year we ask the members of our school community to participate in annual giving, to the extent they are able. The Board of Trustees, Faculty and Staff demonstrate their leadership through 100% participation in Annual Fund each year. We are also deeply grateful for the broad support from alumni and alumni parents, grandparents, and many other friends of the school. No gift is too great or too small, and every gift makes a difference to the lifelong learning of our children.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR LEADERSHIP:

Life at Greene Towne is better because of your contributions to our Annual Fund. Please join our faculty, staff and Board of Trustees with their 100% participation and write a check or make a gift to show your support. Remember, no contribution is too small and every dollar makes an impact. Our children’s promise is worthy of your investment.

WITH WARM REGARDS,

Dan Rainer

President of the Board of Trustees

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund provides a foundation of support for strategic initiatives of our school, as determined by our Head of School in collaboration with the Board and Finance Committee. This includes ensuring a robust financial aid program, sponsoring faculty for Montessori and professional training, conferences and workshops, physical plant improvements, and classroom enhancements. Your gift helps bring dreams to fruition. All gifts are fully tax-deductible for the donor.

Each family is asked to participate in the Annual Fund to the extent they are able. We are also grateful for broad support from alumni and alumni parents, grandparents, and other friends of the school. Leadership gifts and participatory gifts of any size are important for a successful Annual Fund.

Supporters of the Annual Fund may choose to direct their gift to a certain area of the school:

Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program

EITC is a Pennsylvania state program that makes a very positive impact at Greene Towne by funding financial aid. Greene Towne is an approved PreK Scholarship Organization (PKSO) and Scholarship Organization (SO). We provide need-based financial aid for approximately 25 students each year, ranging from partial to almost full tuition.

As a donor through the EITC program, you receive a 90% state tax credit in return for your contribution. For example, a $5000 EITC gift will result in a $4500 PA state tax credit for you AND Greene Towne receives $5000 to award in financial aid for qualified students. Your net contribution after the tax credit is only $500. It really is a win-win for all involved.

Businesses and Individuals can apply to participate. Please tax the opportunity to put your tax dollars to work for Greene Towne.
