A Culture of Giving

The Hershey community encourages a culture of giving. The importance of giving is reinforced to children, and the school is able to provide the highest quality education at a reasonable cost.

Support Hershey Montessori

We ask every family to participate in annual fundraising efforts at whatever level is meaningful and comfortable for their family. We appreciate all efforts – each one makes a difference for the children who walk through our doors.

Go Wild for Hershey! A Spring Gala!

It was wonderful to gather for a fun filled evening in support of Hershey Montessori School for the 2019 Spring Gala. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo provided an exotic backdrop to our glamorously decorated room.  The surprise visitors from the zoo were educational and entertaining.  Plus, we raised over $120,000.00 for the children, families and staff of Hershey! Thank you all for your generosity in making this possible!
