Giving Back to Joyful Education

There are many ways of contributing to the school in support of our mission. The generosity of the school community is so important in providing an excellent Montessori education to our students.

The NewGate Fund

NewGate has expanded to a second beautiful campus in Lakewood Ranch. Please give with enthusiasm in support of this incredible opportunity.

All funds help to ensure that NewGate can cover all costs for the Lakewood Ranch property during the first three years of transitioning to two campuses and to enhance both campuses for the benefit of all students.

You may make a one-time donation or spread your donation monthly over one, two, or three years. For example, a $5,000 gift spread over 36 (three years) payments would be just $139 per month. No matter how large or small, your gift is important. Join our community of parents, students, teachers, and friends support NewGate.If you have any questions, please email Tim Seldin or call us at 941-914-4103.

Other Ways To Donate

Annual Fund
Annual Fund is NewGate's yearly fundraising campaign. The funds donated by the school community, including current parents, former students and their parents, grandparents and friends of NGS, support the educational programs of every student at NewGate every day.

Special Events
The Institutional Advancement Committee also works on annual fundraising events, such as the Golf Classic in September and the Gala in February, to support the Financial Aid program at the school. Families are asked to volunteer time and services to plan and produce this event. Your participation is an important way of supporting NewGate and our diverse community.

Gifts in Kind
Gifts in kind are contributions of time, services, or goods to the school. Examples would include services you can render or items you might donate that NewGate has identified on a wish list.

Planned Giving
Even if you feel you can not make a significant financial contribution to the school right now, planned giving can allow NewGate to benefit from your generosity in years to come and ensure its future for the next generation of children. For information on making a planned giving gift, please contact the Advancement Office or speak with the Head of School.

Our gifts make the magic possible!

We are all lucky to be part of The New Gate School family, and we believe this is truly one of the most exciting times in the school's history.

Our theme is “Planting Seeds for the Future.”

With your help, we can continue to fund the many special projects that are so important to NewGate.Our Goal for this year's Annual Giving Campaign is to raise $175,000. This sum includes funding for specific projects that need your help now. Every donation counts, so please do your part. What matters most is not how much you give, but that you give as generously as you can and from the heart.

We are planting seeds for the future.

Engaged communities, like Sarasota, need a child-centered school that teaches to the strengths of each child and instills a love of learning.

NewGate is a school that “loves our children to a better place.”

It is a school that focuses creates in our children the intellectual and moral foundation they will need in this world, while building extraordinary character in our children.

We are fortunate New Gate fulfills these vital community needs.

No one needs to invent a school like NewGate today because the work was done for us by those who came before.

Some of us have been part of the extended NewGate community for many years. It is such a pleasure to see how the children grow up to become outstanding young men and women, and now to have our own Alexandra and Nicholas in the Upper School.

Thank you for being part of this marvelous family and please join us in “Planting Seeds for the Future” through your gift to this year's NewGate Fund as we honor our faculty and staff, our children, and our campus and community.
