Give Local 2018


Washington Montessori School is excited to once again take part in Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills.

Every dollar donated to WMS from 7 a.m. on April 24 to 7 p.m. on April 25 will be enhanced with bonus funds provided by the Connecticut Community Foundation and generous Give Local sponsors.

Since its inception a few short years ago, Give Local Waterbury and Litchfield Hills
has raised more than $4.5 million in vital funding for local nonprofits.

It’s amazing to think about what we are able to achieve together as a community.

To illustrate just how powerful a group effort can be, we at WMS are going to take on one of the world’s most difficult challenges—a task so daunting only a small percentage of people can claim to have done it!

Standing 29,029 feet tall, Mount Everest is the highest mountain on the planet. Reaching its peak is a lofty goal…every step counts.

During the 36 hours of Giving Local, our WMS community will be climbing Mt. Everest. Symbolically, of course. Right from the comfort of our New Preston campus.

That’s right! We are taking on Everest! Working together, we will take to the stairs, counting our steps and keeping track of our collective progress up the mountain.

Can we climb 29,029 feet of stairs in 36 hours?

We’re pretty sure we can!

How can you be a part of this? Well, you can encourage us to climb higher—step by step—by making your Annual Fund gift during this 36-hour period. Your gifts will be exactly the moral support we need. Our online cheering section!

We’ve set a lofty goal of $29,029 to match the elevation we hope to achieve with our students.

All gifts made to WMS through the 2018 Give Local event will go toward this year’s WMS Annual Fund: One Hundred Percent. In Celebration & Gratitude for Pat Werner.

We’re thrilled to have several generous donors who have pledged $10K in Matching Funds.

Please, if you’ve not yet supported the WMS Annual Fund this year, join us in making a gift through Give Local, and help us reach the top, one step at a time. Together.

We invite you to visit our Give Local page to plan your gift.
