New Year’s Resolution Reminder

Happy holidays everyone – we hope you are enjoying the break and getting a chance to spend some quality time with friends and family. If you haven’t yet made a contribution, please consider taking a minute to offer your support.

Please contribute today

Your tax-deductible donation will help us pay for all the amazing programs offered to our children at EVCS. And, if we reach our goal before the end of the year, we can stop bugging you and start focusing on all the fun upcoming events like Jubilee on Jan. 15 and the Gala on April 29th. We are so close, please do what you can today.

Thank you and we wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

Sincerely,
The Fundraising Team

Fundraising goal over 50% — can you help us reach 100%?

THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed — your generosity is a beautiful thing!

To date we’ve raised $23,365 in family contributions and commitments, that is more than 50% of our goal for the year.

The PA collects funds for programs that enrich each school day for our children. This includes everything from the theater, dance, rock band and chess program to child care for PA meetings, after-school scholarships and even lice checks. We know, you don’t want to be reminded of lice so we promise if you donate today and we meet our goal by the end of the year we will not mention lice again (we’ll leave that to the class parents 🙂

Please contribute today

And we understand that $500 is a lot to ask. If you can handle it, bless you. If you can’t please don’t sweat it — how about $100, or $50? Or you can take that $100 donation and make it in ten monthly installments of $10, if that’s better for you?
We are aiming for 100% family participation at whatever level works for each family.

Peace,

EVCS needs you

Dear EVCS Families

It was great to see so many of you singing loud and proud on Monday morning at School Wide Morning Meeting. We needed that!

And we need you. The success of the East Village Community School depends on direct contributions from families. Your contributions allow our school to be more inclusive, more diverse and more engaging for our children.

The PA needs to raise $77,430 this school year to pay for all the expenses we collectively agreed to cover. That includes everything from the theater, dance, rock band and chess program to child care for PA meetings and after-school scholarships. To date we have raised about $20,000 so we have a long way to go!

We ask that every family consider giving a suggested donation of $500. This can include corporate or small business donors as well as grandparents and close friends and monthly contributions can be automatically debited.

Click here to make your tax deductible contribution today: http://evcsnyc.org/donate/

We value each and every one of you and thank you for any contribution you are able to make.
