Ways of Giving
While Ruffing receives most of its support from tuition revenues, these revenues alone are not enough to support the entire operation of the school. Fundraising activities make it possible to operate on a sound financial basis, to maintain a moderate tuition level, to provide quality Montessori prepared environments, and to attract and hold excellent teaching talent.
How can I help? We’re glad you asked…
Ruffing Annual Auction
The annual auction is Ruffing’s biggest fundraising event. Do you have an item that you could donate to the auction? Item donations and cash donations are always greatly appreciated! Contact the school office at (440) 333-2250 to become a part of this year’s event. Another easy way to get involved is by purchasing an advertisement in our live auction book.
Annual Book Fair
The Barnes & Noble Book Fair is a longstanding fundraiser that is truly loved by all. Next year’s Book Fair will be held on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at Barnes & Noble in Crocker Park. Spread the word: Ruffing receives a percentage of all purchases made by “friends” of Ruffing. You can purchase great books from an astounding selection of the newest and best books available for you and your children! What a great way to support our school.
John and Anne McNamara Scholarship Fund
This ongoing fund is used to help with tuition requirements for those in need and contributions are always welcome. Please make your check payable to “The John and Anne McNamara Scholarship Fund” and mail it to the school.
