Why give?

You may be asking, "Why would I make financial donations to a public school district that already receives my tax dollars?"  It is true that the Community School is an arm of the Morris School District, but we receive no budgetary support from the district.  None of those tax dollars flow to the Community School.  


We operate entirely on the funds we collect as payment for our programs.  In order to function, we need to make a bit more than the cost of our programming so that we can support staff salaries and overhead costs.  


With the exception of those families who qualify for assistance from outside agencies, all those who use our programs and services pay "full price" as published in our brochures, flyers, and e-blasts.  There are times, however, when our community would benefit from our extending specific programs at a greatly reduced price or no charge at all to children or adults who cannot otherwise afford to pay for them.  


Here are some of the projects you could contribute to or adopt through your generosity.


You could:

  • Provide all or part of a campership to Summer Plus or Summer Music Academy

  • Underwrite a parenting program in the adult school

  • Underwrite an enrichment program for students attending Sunset

  • Underwrite child care so that parents of young children could attend a class


Your donations are welcome in any amount, either designated to a particular project or undesignated.  Your funds will be maintained for charitable use.  


Thank you for considering this opportunity to support our community!
