Seward Sustainer Program

We are excited to announce the SEWARD SUSTAINER PROGRAM! The Sustainer Program gives you the opportunity to contribute monthly to Seward Montessori School's PTA fundraising efforts. This monthly donation will allow the PTA to reduce fundraising events and instead concentrate on actual outcomes.

Why do we need to fundraise?  Each year, the PTA spends $40,000-$50,000 to provide your child(ren) with the exceptional school and community experience they get at Seward Montessori. In order to continue to offer and fund all the activities that make our school great, we need to fundraise.

Where does the money go? Please explore this website for a current budget and a comprehensive list of PTA funded events.

You Can Help!

Obviously, a very simple, but very important way to help is to become a sustainer ASAP. (See below)

In addition, the sustainer team will be working this year at school and PTA events, and online, to spread the word about this new program and help people become sustainers.   We think this is a great new approach to our fundraising efforts. Our hope is that it will allow us to spend less time asking for donations and more time working on outcomes & enriching activities for the students and school community.  But we need to get it into gear ASAP in order for it to have this effect. If you would like to help us get the sustainer program off to a successful start please contact us at SewardPTA@gmail.com.
