Donating to the Family Cooperative is investing in the lives of the teachers and children. For so many teachers, the costs of childcare are overwhelming. So often, wonderful teachers fall victim to these ever rising costs; they are forced to leave the classroom because they cannot afford quality care for their children.
The Family Cooperative works to address this challenge for teachers. When you donate to the Family Cooperative, you are supporting the teachers who educate and care for children everyday. You are making it possible for them to remain in the classroom, secure in the knowledge that their children are learning and thriving in a nurturing school environment.
We thank you for your interest and support. We welcome general donations in addition to donations for several fundraising events during the year, see below for all the events for the 2020-2021 school year:
Trivia Night Swag Raffle Fun Run Wine and Cheese Night Valentine's Grams
Your contributions truly make a difference in our lives, and in the teaching and learning that takes place at The Family Cooperative. We would love donations in the amount of $10, $25, $50 or $100. To make your donation please use the PayPal link below.
This year has presented unprecedented challenges to each and every Early Childhood Center in the country. TFC faculty are facing these challenges every day and need your support more than ever.
All fundraising efforts this year are concentrated on our Covid Relief Fund. This fund allows the school to take extra measures to keep Faculty and Students safe, including PPE, cleaning supplies and extra staffing.
We greatly appreciate anything you are able to donate, and a huge THANK YOUto those that have already donated.
Donations can be made by clicking our PayPal link above, or by check made out to "The Family Cooperative".
Donating Used Items
The Family Cooperative is always in need of classroom materials that support young children’s thinking and learning. We would love to receive gently used materials as donations.
An Important Note:
The Family Cooperative is an educational space for young children, and the materials in our classrooms reflect our learning and thinking goals. As a result, we are looking only for educational materials, rather than household toys. Please refer to our Amazon Wish List for guidance on the kinds of materials that we need for the classroom.
Some examples of donations that cannot be accepted are:
Commercially themed toys (Barbie, Polly Pocket, Disney Characters, Star Wars, Pokemon etc.)
Mechanized toys (anything that lights up, makes noise, etc.)
Video games or game systems
Incomplete toy sets
Classroom furniture (cribs, high chairs, tables, chairs etc.)
