Overview of Fundraising

Unlike many other schools, our monthly tuition collected does not completely cover our school’s monthly expenditures and other financial obligations.  As a cooperative preschool, we try to keep our tuition and registration fees low so that the maximum number of families can participate.  In order to do this we need successful fundraisers to support our school.

What does fundraising pay for?

The funds raised benefit our school in many ways.  They help pay for our exceptional teachers, the supplies and equipment used for class, and rent at our wonderful location.  It keeps our tuition low and supports our scholarship fund.  A copy of our complete current budget is available upon request.


What is my role in fundraising?

In order to make fundraisers a success, we need your participation.  This is an essential part of co-op membership and the reason for our affordable tuition.  If we co-op members do not raise the necessary amount of money to cover our operating costs each year, our school will cease to exist.Please talk to our Treasurer if you would prefer to give a donation to the school and opt-out of fundraising for the year.
