The LMS Fund runs from July 1st to June 30th. All gifts to LMS are tax deductible to the full extent of the law, and will be acknowledged in writing for tax purposes. All donors will be recognized in the LMS Annual Report of Giving, and may be listed as "Anonymous" by request.
|Cash |Checks should be made payable to Lexington Montessori School and sent to the LMS Community Development Office at 130 Pleasant Street, Lexington, MA 02421 or dropped off in our office at 12 Lawrence Lane.

Please include the donor's name, zip code, credit card number and expiration date, as well as the amount of the gift and to which Fund the gift should be allocated.
|Corporate Matching Gifts |
A large number of corporations offer employee Matching Gift programs. This is an easy way to double or sometimes even triple the value of your gift. A complete list of the corporations with Matching Gift programs for elementary schools is available from the Community Development Office. Contributors should contact their employer for Matching Gift instructions.
|Gifts of Securities |The gift will be valued on the day that one's securities are transferred to the LMS Vanguard account. We suggest using electronic transfer for donating securities as it is the timeliest method. The contributor's broker should contact the Community Development Office for details regarding account information.
