Make an Impact When You Make a Donation

Your gift can have a wonderful impact on OCMS and our children. As with most independent schools, we rely on fundraising and donations to support our mission.

Over 50 years ago, our school was founded by a group of parents with a dream. By their hands, funding, hard work, and hearts, they molded a learning institution that is still thriving today. We have an opportunity to carry on this legacy. Let's work together to ensure that OCMS remains a premier provider of early childhood and elementary education for another 50 years and beyond.

We appreciate and thank you for your generosity. For more information on how you can support OCMS with your financial gift, please contact Tracey Buckeridge, Head of School, at

Ways to Give

List of 3 items.

  • Cash

    Gifts of cash are the most direct and popular type of charitable gift. They are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes to the extent provided by law. An outright gift of cash is considered made on the date the gift is hand delivered or postmarked if mailed. Therefore, year-end contributions postmarked by December 31 are deductible even if received in January. Also, because of the tax savings available to donors who itemize deductions, the net cost to the donor will be lower than the actual amount of the gift.

    Cash gifts can be made by check or credit card. If you'd like to pay by check, please mail your gift to: Old Colony Montessori Development Office, Old Colony Montessori School, 247 Gardner Street, Hingham, MA 02043.
  • Credit Card

    To make a donation via credit card, please visit this donation page hosted by our community partner, Fortua, and select "Contribute Now". All donations received after December 7, 2016 will be automatically applied to our Annual Fund Drive for our OCMS Scholarship Fund. Thank you for your generosity and support.
  • Matching Gifts

    Many businesses match the personal gifts made by employees, retirees and family members to educational institutions. Information on your company s matching gift program may generally be obtained from your human resources department.
