- Support Us
Please consider contributing to My Iman Montessori in the form of donations, volunteerism, or other gifts.
Because MIM is a private, independent institution, we do not receive support from the public. Our school's daily operation is run on tuition costs and donations.
Our community has been fortunate enough to begin and maintain a full-time Islamic school that provides a wonderful, enriching environment for our next generation of Muslim children to flourish as educated Mu'mineen. SubhanAllah, since MIM's inception in 2009, we've grown to consist of a diverse student population from all over the world. With this diversity and growing enrollment numbers come specific obligations from our community to help support our school's mission and continue to provide quality education in a modest Islamic environment. This presents us with the opportunity to give Sadaqah Jariah (voluntary charity).
Thank you for your support and commitment to our school.
Where does my contribution go?
Each year, we designate a certain amount of money to each of our fundraising projects to help better our school. Ongoing fundraising categories include the following:
- Tuition: A significant portion of monetary gifts goes towards keeping tuition affordable for more of our families.
- Materials: As each of our students is unique and talented, donations allow us to purchase materials which will help expand, enrich, and challenge each of those children.
- Facility: We are a growing school Alhamdulillah! Your donations make it possible for our school to not only expand in number of students, but in size, too!

Do you participate in corporation education support programs?
Yes, we do! We participate in the following programs:
- AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the eligible charitable organization of your choice. To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to AmazonSmile to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. Customers will have access to the same products, features, services, and great low prices as on Amazon.com. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible AmazonSmile purchases to charitable organizations selected by customers.
