Invest in Our Changemakers

Our 2017 Fall Fundraiser kicks off with a Fund-a-Need drive. Buying "shares” from a wish-list of items raises the money needed for their purchase. You may buy as many shares as you like, of as many items as you like. We'll be adding items as we go, so check back often.

In October, we’ll unveil all the fantastic items donated by Oakland businesses and our own generous parent community. Then we'll be open for bidding November 1–17. Something for every interest and every budget, from gift certificates, starting at under $10 to summer camps, classes, museum memberships, and other must-haves. All proceeds support Oakland's only public Montessori school, bringing Montessori education, arts integration, and design thinking to Oakland's diverse community. Do you know someone or a business that might donate to our auction? Fill out and print this form and return it to UMCS by October 25.

REGISTER NOW to support us in Developing Changemakers, Taking Montessori Public, and Innovating in Oakland. The auction will run September 20 through November 17, 2017. 

Whether your family contributes $1, $10, $100 or $1,000, every donation counts!

If you prefer, you don't need to shop or bid to support UMCS, and instead, you can:
