Fundraising for Foster
The Fundraising for Foster is typically held in March.

Get ready to mingle, dance, and raise money for Armatage Montessori School! In addition to being an enjoyable evening out, Fundraising for Foster (formerly Maude) is a critical direct-to-school fundraiser. In the past, money raised through this event (online auction, event tickets, beverage sales, additional donations, event raffle tickets) has enabled Principal Franks to stretch the budget in remarkable ways. If you are unable to attend the event or participate in the online auction, but want to contribute, please consider a direct to school donation at the website link below by clicking on the "Tickets" button and choosing Direct to School Donation.  Look forward to more information about prizes and the online auction.

Online Auction

Keep the fun going!   The Fundraising for Foster online auction will go live in March.  All proceeds from the online auction will provide much needed funding to support student learning at Armatage. 

As always, the online auction will include a variety of gift certificates to local businesses, restaurants, events and experiences.  Popular items from previous years will be available again including; a weekend get-a-way to Lost Land Lake in Hayward, WI and bedtime stories with Ms. Margo.  In addition, Armatage teachers will once again provide grade-level prizes for meeting specific fundraising goals.  

Visit to see all the wonderful items made available through the generosity of our school community.  Bid early and bid often!

If you’re interested in helping with the event or want to donate an item to the auction, please contact Katie Giedt at
