Below is information on annual fundraisers we run along with other ways you can support Gardenview Montessori.
Thank you for your support.
Annual Holiday Bazaar
The holiday bazaar is an annual event hosted by Gardenview and is a kid and family friend celebration of the holiday season. We have a silent auction with items generously donated by local businesses and parents, live musical entertainment, kids crafts and activities, a kids-only raffle and delicious bake sale. For more information visit the Holiday Bazaar website at: www.gardenviewbazaar.com.
Annual Garage Sale
The garage sale is an annual fundraiser for Gardenview and happens every summer! It’s a fun event for the Birchwood neighborhood, the perfect way to donate your unused and unwanted items and a great time for families to connect. We also have a bake sale with lemonade and Gardenbrew coffee that is run by the children of the school. All proceeds support Gardenview Montessori.
Ongoing Coffee Fundraiser
We sell our own blend of coffee with our own label from Hammerhead Coffee. Hammerhead Coffee is a small, family-owned roasting company located in Bellingham, WA. They sell organically-grown and Fair Trade Certified Coffee beans. We really love working with this company. The name chosen for our blend is Gardenbrew. It is a classic combination of coffees from Indonesia and Ethiopia, featuring a full body, lots of earth and berries, and a nice winey brightness. Flavor-wise, it is the most easily distinguishable of the world’s great coffees. The price for each 12-ounce bag of coffee is $12.00. Checks can be made out to Gardenview Montessori.

- Make a donation to the Abigail Tandy Mae Stout Memorial Scholarship Fund: On January 7, 2006 one of the students attending Gardenview Montessori was fatally injured in a tragic accident. She was a bright, beautiful, amazing 5 ¾ year old girl. She had more enthusiasm for life in her few short years than most of us will know in our entire life. She will be greatly missed by everyone who had the fortune of having her in their life.
We have set up a scholarship fund in her memory at Gardenview Montessori. The funds raised so far have enabled us to offer several partial scholarships to some very deserving children. We hope to be able to offer more partial scholarships as well as a couple of full scholarships each year but can only do so with generous donations from you. Please make a donation in memory of Abi to support scholarships at Gardenview Montessori School.
