On September 25, 2018, Dr. Robert & Nenita Fry generously seeded our first endowment, the Montessori Families Endowment Fund. In 52 years of operation, this is the school’s first endowment and we are so thrilled to be able to facilitate the use of these funds to educate Montessori students at the Montessori School of Huntsville. We are so grateful to them for their incredible generosity and commitment to scholarship through this long-term investment.
I have put together a few thoughts on why Nan and I were more than willing — no we were excited — to be instigators in a project such as this. We both agreed that what we had seen with Sebastian and his sense of what learning was could and should be made available to as many as possible. Nan related that she wanted to be an encourager in this process as there were numbers of tikes that needed this to flourish in our society. I had felt that program was easily a throw-back to older education methods that had made our country strong in the past, while still being Avant Garde with a modern technique. We were thrilled to be able to pick up the banner and help renew the flow of funding for a future of children that perhaps needed and desired this means of education. Why not join in with a proven program which can enable rapid learning and a love of discovery of reading, math, art, and language while teaching peaceful objectives? Better teaching, a better world. – Dr. Robert Fry, Jr.
The Fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville and donations from anyone can be made through our secure Bloomerang donation form by selecting the endowment from the drop-down menu. Donations are tax-deductible and the principle is protected per the policies of the community foundation. Thank you for considering joining Dr. Robert Fry and Nenita Fry as long-term supporters of the Montessori mission through a donation to this fund.
