The Gather for Good 2022

What a night.


On May 14, 2022, the MMS community gathered on Angel Island to celebrate The Power of Story while raising critical funds for our Tuition Assistance Program.


A Note from our Head of School

The Gather is more than our annual fundraiser: it is the moment we come together to enliven our values, celebrate our creativity and vision for the world, and join together as partners in making our life-changing education accessible to as many families and students as possible. Please take a moment to read the names listed below and rejoice in the overwhelming participation in and enthusiasm for Marin Montessori's mission. 

If you have ever wondered about the impact of your support for the Tuition Assistance Program, read on. If you've not yet donated to support Tuition Assistance, you can do so here.

"When I received news that there was Tuition Assistance available, it was a huge weight off my chest. This school means the world to me and my daughter. She loves the school and her friends, and we feel so fortunate to be able to come to this school, and if it wasn't for people donating…that wouldn't be possible."

"We are beyond thankful and forever grateful to have this opportunity, and it has made all the difference in the world for our child. As Maria Montessori said; 'Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.'  Thank you to Marin Montessori for giving the "respect" to our children with the gift of this education."  

"We are not only grateful for the financial generosity but proud to be a part of this group of kind-hearted people…A heartfelt thank you from our family for allowing us to provide stability and comfort for our children to continue to grow and thrive in this community during these otherwise unpredictable times."

On behalf of the students and families whose lives you have touched, thank you.
