APM is a public elementary school and part of the Appleton Area School District. While the school receives taxpayer dollars, we also rely on the generosity of parents, grandparents, friends, and community members to provide the funds necessary to make APM truly exceptional. We are appreciative of all donations. Your tax-deductible gift can be made via check, credit card, or securities. Be sure to check with your employer to see if your gift can be matched.

Endowment Fund

Give to the Endowment Fund

To celebrate Appleton Education Foundation’s 20 years of creatively enhancing education in our community, the Foundation is helping six AASD schools build permanent endowment funds. This endowment building campaign benefits current and future students of the selected schools.

Gifts received before March 31, 2018 will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $6,000/school ($5,000/school must be raised to receive the match). 

Please select Appleton Public Montessori from the drop down or you can drop off checks at school made out to APMA with a note “for Endowment.”

Box Tops For Education

APM participates in Box Tops For Education.  We are happy to receive Box Tops, Bonus Box Tops clippings and Bonus Box Tops receipts at any time before they expire.  Examples are shown below.  We can earn $20,000 or more when we turn these into Box Tops for Education.

Amazon Smile

We would like to introduce everyone to a new and easy way to raise money for our school. Rather than shopping through, you go to and shop just like usual.

This link will take you directly to in support of APMA or go to and select Appleton Public Montessori Association as your charitable organization. It is that easy and 0.5% of the sales go directly to APMA!  Please spread the word to your friends and family so they are all set up before the holiday shopping season.

Thank you so much for your support!

Employer Donations

Many companies have programs in place for donations to schools. For example, Kimberly Clark employees and spouses can volunteer for 30 hours and KC will donate $500! We have 2 KC families currently helping this way.

For verification of volunteer hours or other contact needs, email the Board President at . The school principal can also verify hours.

Thank you!
