You make Syringa Mountain School’s exceptional education possible. The Annual Fund is SMS’s most important giving opportunity. Your participation is critical and reflects your belief in all that happens here.
SMS is a very special place, particularly in its mission to provide an innovative, beautiful, inspiring education to your children – tuition free. And it’s the first charter school in Blaine County and the first Public Waldorf Charter school in Idaho. As a public school, we receive state and federal funds that cover approximately 65% of the cost of running and maintaining our school. As a charter school, however, SMS is excluded from accessing local funding that the Blaine County School District receives from local taxes. In order to cover the remaining budget needs, we depend on donations from generous community members.
Annual contributions, large and small, make possible the unique educational opportunities offered here. We are seeking 100% Parent Participation in the Annual Fund Contribution. All contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
Did you know? When donating to Syringa Mountain School, Inc. you (an individual) are eligible for a $500 tax credit ($1,000 filing jointly) against your Idaho Income Tax Liability. An example: a $1,000 donation to our school, at the federal income tax rate of 25%, really only costs you, $176 dollars. Why not choose choose where your tax dollars go?
