Dear Friends, Families and Alumni of Columbia Greenhouse Community,

The 2021-2022 school year marks the 102nd year of Columbia Greenhouse Nursery School’s deep commitment to young children and families. We are proud of our proven history and long-standing dedication to protecting early childhood. Even through trying times, Greenhouse’s mission stayed true to its roots: to support children’s development by providing rich learning experiences that are built on the foundation of warm, supportive relationships. While we are still feeling the impacts of the global pandemic on much of our daily lives, we are committed to preserving the Greenhouse experience for this generation and those yet to come. To do this, we need your help.

Can you make a donation to our Annual Fund?

Our Annual Fund is the cornerstone of Greenhouse fundraising efforts and supports a significant percentage of our operating budget. In addition, our other traditional fundraising events, including the Annual Benefit, remain postponed for this year. Which means, while your Annual Fund gift is critical every year – it is even more critical this year. 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 Annual Fund allow us to continue to offer the quality program for which Greenhouse is known.  Your gift impacts every student every day; make a gift of $250 (the usual cost of the tickets to the Annual Benefit) and help us continue to provide the latest materials and equipment to keep our kids discovering and exploring. Any gift you make today helps 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. A generous Annual Fund gift allows us to continue to retain and attract talented and passionate early childhood educators. Your participation in our Annual Fund is critical to our ongoing work.

Please join us in the work of preserving our Greenhouse experience and make a tax-deductible online donation to Greenhouse today. All donations – regardless of amount – are truly needed and are received with heartfelt gratitude.
