Support the Children’s Community School
The income we receive from tuition is not enough on its own to cover the costs of running our high quality center. In 2019-20 we anticipate a $125,000 gap between the tuition we will receive and the cost of operating the school—a gap that will need to be made up through donations, grants, and other kinds of income.
Ways to Support CCS
Tuition Percentage Donations
Enrolled families can choose to add a small percentage to their tuition that will be automatically added on to each bill. 100% of these tax-deductible donations go to fund financial aid. And once you set it, you never have to think about it again! Email Stephanie if you’re interested in participating.
Security Deposit Donations
Every enrolled family pays a security deposit, which is returned after their child graduates. Many departing families choose to donate their security deposits back to the school their children have loved. Departing families are contacted to see if they are interested in making this tax-deductible donation.
This spring we’ll be planning a fundraising event, and we need help! If you’d like to assist, email Tessa.

Step by step, the longest march can be won, can be won
Many stones can form an arch, singly none, singly none
And by union what we will
Can be accomplished still
Drops of water turn a mill, singly none, singly none.
