The Compass Montessori Education Foundation is a stand-alone, non-profit foundation focused exclusively on raising money to support Compass Montessori School. The foundation relies on the support of the Compass community and external sources.

As a Montessori charter school, Compass has a different financial picture than traditional schools—and even other charters. Like all Jeffco public charters, we pay for our own facilities and operating expenses (which neighborhood schools don’t do). As a Montessori school, we have spend more per classroom as we have at least two adults in each classroom, and each classroom is equipped with high-quality, specialized Montessori materials.

Each year, we raise money to invest back into the school community. CMEF helps pay for teacher training, classroom materials, trip scholarships and special projects like new lockers.

The CMEF board is working with the Compass school board to help ensure a strong future for our community. We would like to have a healthier balance so we can to help the school buy land, pay down our bond, or improve our facilities. We want to improve the overall Compass Montessori experience for every student and family that comes here.

Thank you for being part of the Compass Montessori community. Our school, students, faculty, and staff are strong because of those of you who generously give your time, talent and money.

You can make a donation online by giving directly through the Compass Montessori Colorado Gives page by clicking here. Thank you in advance for your support!
