Please consider making a donation to Casa’s Mariposa Fund.  This campaign raises the operating funds that enable the School to provide an extraordinary Montessori education with a Spanish focus to our children.

Help Us Bridge the Gap

The state and local funding Casa receives does not cover all of our expenses. Without the financial support of donors, our programs would not be possible.

This year we need to raise $80,000 to reach our goal. This is just under 2% of our entire $4.3 million budget. The Mariposa Fund helps us to bridge the budget gap and provide a unique educational experience for all Casa students.

Some of the ways we use the Mariposa Fund to make Casa such a special place:

  • Montessori training and materials ($3,000 per teacher)
  • Immigration sponsorship for teachers ($5,000 per teacher)
  • Providing 2 adults in every classroom ($117,000 per classroom)
  • Low student/teacher ratio in our MG program ($5,000 per student)
  • Art, Music and Physical Education ($135,000 for staff and supplies)

 

Why Give to the Mariposa Fund?

Casa offers a unique educational model with two adults in every pre-K through 6th grade classroom. We offer specials such as art, music and physical education. Teachers are highly trained and state certified. Immersion program teachers are also native speakers of Spanish. We rely on the Mariposa Fund to cover all the wonderful and unique experiences that we offer our students.

We hope you will consider a gift.

Charter Finance 101

  •  Charter schools receive limited state and county funds for instruction, and we do not receive lottery or bond funds.
  • State and county funds are still below 2008-2009 levels.
  • Funds are not provided for building and associated expenses(approx. $36,000 per month).
  • CASA spends 70% of the annual budget on staff compensation-$2.9 million!

Every gift is valuable to Casa faculty and students. We appreciate whatever you can contribute, and would love to welcome you into the Casa Family!
