Private schools, such as MONTINI, benefit students by fostering academic excellence and high achievement while educating students in a value based setting and preparing youngsters for a lifetime of success.  Community support is what allows MONTINI to be an exceptional school with unique programs, terrific teachers, and our high record of academic excellence. Like other private schools and universities, MONTINI relies on the generosity of parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, staff and friends to keep our school flourishing.

When you give to the Annual Fund, you ultimately support the school's goal of delivering a world-class education to its students. You help preserve a 15-to-1 student-faculty ratio that fosters healthy debate, personal exploration, strong interpersonal characteristics, and leadership skills. The best way to give through the annual fund is by choosing:
  • Area of Greatest Student Need - Many donors understand that there are costs associate with a MONTINI education that are hard to categorize. This fund allows us to support those areas of greatest student need. We appreciate the trust that donors place in us to use this money wisely to best serve our students.
If you would like to see your donation used in a different way, you can designate your donation so that it is used specifically as you wish:

  • 21st Century Learning Resource Center - Expose students to the latest technology to enrich their educational experience, providing financial support for state-of-the-art technology to ensure that young people develop the information literacy skills crucial to their success as students and as lifelong learners.
  • Tuition Assistance - Providing the resources to enroll a student population that is highly diverse, talented, and motivated to succeed in Montini's unique community.We rely on the support we receive from our community to ensure that we can offer this vital assistance to our families. Each year, approximately 20% of students will need financial assistance to attend Montini Catholic. In the most recent school year, the school awarded close to $400,000 to those students and families with demonstrated need, guaranteeing no qualified applicant is ever denied enrollment for financial reasons.
  • Curriculum Enhancement - Enrich our academic programs by encouraging the use of technology (such as curriculum based software, ipads, interactive whiteboards), expanded offerings, and upgrades to the classroom themselves along with books, materials, and equipment.
  • Campus Ministry - Helps support and enhance programs in the Ministry program so students can continue to develop their faith with liturgical and personal prayer, retreat participation, service opportunities and leadership building programs
  • Athletic and Physical Education - Ensures students receive a well-rounded education that emphasizes the importance of athletics and physical education, and provides financial support for athletic equipment, coaching stipends, resources, and programs.
  • The Fine and Performing Arts - Helps support and enhance programs in the ARTS, including music (in the classroom, choir, and band), drama, and dance programs. They also provide resources to bring in visiting artists, authors and illustrators to the school and funds to support the spring musical.
The Annual Fund is set up to to accept donations annually for each school year (which are fiscal years being July 1 – June 30) that provides financial support to the operating budget for a wide range of programs that helps Montini Catholic continue in its mission. Additionally, donations through the Scholarship or Financial Aid forums also support the Annual Fund and provides tuition assistance to deserving students - making the MONTINI experience possible for them. Use the the Scholarship or Financial Aid forums to create and/or donate to a specific fund. Donations to support capital improvements to the school are not covered by the Annual Fund. Donations to the our capital campaign helps MONTINI build new and/or renovate existing school facilities; and many people support the capital campaign in addition to the annual fund. 

Our goal is 100% participation and
your donation — of whatever amount — helps us meet that goal.
