One of the reasons First Presbyterian Preschool enjoys a 70-year legacy is because of the vast volunteer and financial support we receive from current parents, past parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends. It is impossible to name the countless ways our supporters give–both small and large–that have an enormous and lasting impact. As is the case for most private schools, tuition alone does not cover the cost of affording our children a strong early learning foundation. We are grateful for the numerous ways our community shares of their time, talent and financial support. Together we will all advance the mission and vision of First Presbyterian Preschool.
Each year, our preschool relies on the support of our families to run our school and programs. Tuition alone does not fully support the cost to educate our children; in fact, only 86% of our budget is raised from tuition dollars. The remaining 14% is the result of our fundraising efforts and the generous support of our current and alumni families.
There are many ways to support FPP!
Gifts to the FPP Annual Fund help FPP continue to operate and closes the gap between tuition and the cost to educate. This gap is around $950 per child per year. Gifts to the Annual Fund are 100% tax deductible and go directly to support the school’s overall budget.
In addition to closing the gap between tuition and the cost to educate, gifts to the Annual Fund and Annual Fundraiser also provide the “extras” for our students and teachers that help to make FPP so special. These initiatives can include:
Cherisher’s Circle: $5,000+
Nurturer’s Circle: $2,500-$4,999
Director’s Circle: $1,000-$2,499
Patron’s Circle: $500-$999
Supporter’s Circle: $250-$499
Donor’s Circle: Other Gifts
