Dear Early Learning Center Families and Friends,
As you know, the Early Learning Center serves an amazing community of children and families. However, your tuition alone does not pay for extra needs for our building and security for our school. The 2016 Giving Campaign was able to raise enough money to support our scholarships, the naturalscape playground AND refloor our classrooms! We're thrilled with the new look and feel of our classroom, and we'd love to finish the flooring job in the hallways with funds raised from the 2018 giving campaign. Additionally, the ELC is hoping to open an infant room in 2018, and we need your help!
We are kicking off this Giving Campaign with a party on October 14. Tickets will be available for purchase starting September 18.
Our fundraising goal is $85,000. Here is the breakdown of what we are hoping to provide for our school with your support.
$20,000 - Scholarship funds to afford children the benefits of a high quality early childhood education at the Early Learning Center if their families are unable to pay the full price of tuition.
$5,000 – Annual maintenance of our new natural scape playground and gardens.
$40,000 – Complete flooring in ELC hallways, staff lounge and resource room.
$20,000 – Open an infant room in the ELC.
It is our hope that all Early Learning Center families will consider making a donation for your end-of-the-year giving. We encourage you to share this with friends, neighbors, grandparents and extended families. All donations are tax deductible and will also fall under the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (50%). Naming opportunities are available – please see Susan Wartchow if you are interested in this option.
We thank you in advance for your generosity and we are confident that, by all supporting this campaign, the Early Learning Center will meet our $85,000 goal! And with this we will continue to grow and thrive!
