The Endowment Fund
The Endowment (formerly known as The Mustang Fund) is a not-for-profit fundraising organization dedicated to Montgomery Elementary School’s pursuit of excellence in education. Our mission is to support curriculum enhancements and capital improvements for the school by securing individual contributions, corporate donations and proceeds from community fundraising events.
Our vision is to ensure that Montgomery continues to be a top-scoring, sought-after public elementary school within the Chamblee cluster of northern DeKalb County.
The Endowment Fund is committed to:
- Enhancing the learning environment for every Montgomery Elementary School student;
- Investing in faculty, programming and equipment to continue to offer a first-rate educational experience;
- Providing for short-term needs as well as longer-term curriculum enhancements;
- Giving back to students, parents, faculty, local businesses and private citizens; and
- Maintaining and strengthening the vitality of this dynamic community in which we live, learn, play and work.
The Endowment Fund brings together parents, teachers, neighbors, businesses, administrators and staff working toward a common goal: excellence in public education.
The Fund’s past campaigns have supported our mission of making strategic investments in: educational enhancements (grants for Orton-Gillingham Certification, Science Olympiad, STAR reading supplemental materials, FIRST Lego League, and STEM curriculum) and capital improvements (STEM lab, new playground, updated hallways and a refurbished foyer).
This year the Endowment Fund will focus on building corporate sponsorships and accept corporate donations.
