** Check bottom of page for NEW option to support NEIM and local business! **  

Thank you so much for your ongoing support of NEIM!

The programs simply could not operate without fundraising and generous donations from the Decorah community, families, alumni, and staff. We are so grateful for your support!

Financial Donations

Financial donations help us keep the lights on, the work spaces well stocked, and the staff adequately compensated for their hard work and dedication. Please consider a contribution today to support high quality Montessori education for students in the Decorah community.

Or, you may send your donation to:

ATTN: Rachael Buresh, Head of School
Northeast Iowa Montessori
418 W Water St.
Decorah, IA, 52101

Gifts in Kind

Gifts in kind are contributions of time, services, or goods to the school. Examples include donation of construction or landscaping expertise, or donations of art supplies, furniture, technology, or other wish list items. For our wish list please contact Rachael Buresh, Head of School, at neimontessori@gmail.com.

Planned Giving

Planned giving can allow NEIM to benefit from donations in years to come. For information on making a planned giving gift, please email Rachael Buresh, Head of School, at neimontessori@gmail.com.

Stock Transfer

Have some stock that you don’t want anymore? We are the answer! If you would like more information on this option please contact Scott Searcy, School Board Treasurer, at bodylogicsdecorah@gmail.com.

Box Tops for Education

It helps more than you know! In the past, we have asked you to cut out those box tops you find on certain purchases, but they are phasing out that option in 2020 and going digital. You can still cut out and give/send us any that you find without the digital option. Below is some information regarding the app or visit their website http://boxtops4education.com 

  1. Download the Box Top for Education app onto your phone. 
  2. Make an account and choose Northeast Iowa Montessori School.
  3. Then simply scan in your receipts. (Make sure you scan in your receipt within 14 days of your purchases or they expire.)
  4. It will do the hard work for you and will find the items that are applicable.
  5. It will also track how much you have earned for NEIM and what items to buy to receive double points!

NOTE: Box Tops does not spam you in any way when you scan in your receipt. They simply want to support the school that you are supporting!

Through Amazon Purchases

We love to support local businesses, but sometimes we shop online. Did you know that you can help support NEIM every time you place an order on Amazon? Yes, it’s that easy! All you need to do is visit www.smile.amazon.com instead of your regular amazon page. Make sure you add “smile” before amazon each time you log in. From there you can choose the organization you wish to support. That’s all you have to do!
