The Denison Parent Organization (DPO) has changed! we are now Families of Denison Montessori, A Nonprofit Organization (FDM). We feel our new name is more inclusive and better reflects our mission and goals. Now was a good time to change our name because we’ve applied for nonprofit status with the IRS. In order to do that, we had to incorporate with the state as a new organization.
The benefits of incorporating and becoming a nonprofit are that we will be a tax-exempt organization, which will simplify donations and fundraisers, the number of grants we can apply for increases, and we are recognized as a nonprofit organization by both the state and federal governments.
We encourage you to attend our meetings! Please check the information board (in the front lobby behind the piano) for information on meeting dates and times, and FDM updates.
