Montclair Cooperative School thrives on the financial generosity of parents, alumni, alumni parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends. Giving to the Co-op directly benefits our students while demonstrating your support to the school’s mission and values.

There are many ways to support the Co-op:


The Co-op Fund offers you a way to support our unique educational program and bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Co-op education. Your tax-deductible donations go directly to our annual operating budget and also help to fund our tuition assistance program. As we launch the campaign each fall, we ask each member of our Co-op community to participate in the Co-op Fund at a meaningful level. With a goal of 100% participation from the Board of Trustees, parents, and employees, the support we get from these “internal” constituents gives foundations and other funding sources an indication of our institutional strength.


Our annual Auction raises funds to benefit the Montclair Cooperative School and to celebrate the value and uniqueness of the Co-op’s nurturing and vibrant educational program. In addition to food, drink, music, and dancing, the event features Raffle items, Silent Auction, Event Sign-Ups, Class Gifts, and a Live Auction. 


Gifts that are part of an overall financial plan and benefit you as well as MCS are planned gifts. They are deliberate strategies designed to meet your specific goals and often include estate planning. Planned gifts can enable you to make a larger gift than you might have thought possible while providing financial benefit to you.


The Co-op accepts donations of equipment, furniture, library books, and other items that are in good condition and are relevant to the educational program and mission of the school.
