Hey, you learn something new every day. We have been making custom fundraising car magnets for Montessori Schools for about 10 years, and I just realized that I really had no idea what a Montessori School was. So, I Googled it. There are an endless number of sites that try to explain how a Montessori School works, and what makes it different from traditional public schools.
After reading through about a dozen sites, I have distilled this down to the following sentence: “Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori and characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.”
Obviously it’s much more in-depth than that, but it sure sounds like it would have been a lot more fun than the public schools I went to in the 60’s.
Okay, so why would a Montessori School need a car magnet? In America, the majority of Montessori Schools are privately owned and do not receive financial support from the government. A growing number of them are joining the Public School System, but almost all of their money comes from tuition. This leaves a funding gap that needs to be filled by fundraising.
Most private schools put on elaborate Black Tie events to do the bulk of their fundraising, usually under the classification of Capital Funding Campaign. This is where like-minded patrons with deep pockets write the big checks that pay for the new gymnasium or new science lab.
But for the smaller projects which are funded by the PTA or PTO, a car magnet fundraiser could be a very important piece of the fundraising puzzle. An average size school could make several thousands of dollars by selling custom car magnets designed by ARC Marketing.
