Even with strong fiscal management, fundraising dollars are needed to balance the operating budget. Every year the Keystone Board of Directors evaluates the gap between our operating expenses and our revenue sources of state funding and tuition. With Arizona having one of the lowest per-pupil funding rates in the country, this gap is significant, forcing schools to find alternate ways to deal with serious budget deficits. Contributions go toward: operating support, capital improvements, training & development for faculty, technology enhancements, & replacing worn classroom materials.
Every Keystone family and friend is asked to support the school by participating within their means in the Sustaining Fund, Public School Tax Credit Program and Special Events. Your gifts are essential to create an authentic Montessori school for our children. By coming together as a community, we can ensure that our children receive the most important gift of all an education that inspires a passion for excellence and a lifelong love of learning.
