Dear Friends and Families of Columbia Greenhouse,
The 2016-2017 school year marks the 97th year of Columbia Greenhouse Nursery School’s deep commitment to young children and families. In the current education climate of standards, testing and direct instruction, Greenhouse stands firm and strong in its commitment to protect early childhood; we understand how the power of discovery and the power of play join together to create the perfect conditions for learning in our young children. As much as Greenhouse has sustained our mission with continuity and dedication, a good school is a living, changing community that requires continual reflection, renovation, and development.
I write to ask you, our friends, families, and alumni, to make a year-end gift to our Annual Fund Appeal. Like all independent schools, our tuition fees cover only a portion of the true costs associated with our complete operating expenses. The monies raised in our Fund Appeal allow us to continue to offer the quality program for which Greenhouse is known. Your gift impacts every student every day. Last year, Annual Fund monies purchased much-needed classroom furniture and equipment. Also, Fund money allowed us to give financial aid grants to over 20% of the children attending Greenhouse. With your gift today, we will continue to enhance and improve our school’s environment. Your gift of $100 or more means a beloved teacher will be able to attend a professional development conference to pursue a topic of interest. Lastly, make a gift today and help us continue to build a healthy financial aid fund so that we can continue to provide families with the help they need to access our program. Your Annual Fund gift is critical to our ongoing work.
Please join us in our work and make a tax-deductible donation to Greenhouse today. All donations – regardless of the amount – are truly needed in order to meet our goals, and are received with heartfelt gratitude. Click the green Donate button above to make an online donation.
As always, you are our best partners in our work to provide quality early childhood programing for young children and their families.
