Each year gifts of all levels from families, alumni, trustees, faculty, staff and friends provide Chemung Valley Montessori School with critical resources that help maintain low teacher-student ratios, improve outdoor play spaces and facilities, enrich and expand curriculum, and provide professional development for staff. We are deeply grateful to our extended community of benefactors who contribute so generously to the CVMS Fund for Excellence (FFE).

Every gift matters. Whether you contribute to the FFE, make a gift of stock, or honor CVMS with an in-kind donation, your gift touches lives. From the classrooms to the playgrounds and across the entire campus, your generosity supports excellence at Chemung Valley Montessori School.
