WHAT IS THE FUNDRAISING REQUIREMENT?
Fundraising requirements, $50 Toddler Class; $100 2/3 Class; $150 3/4 Class and Pre-K Class as outlined in the Parent Handbook and defined by the Fundraising Committee. For families with multiple children enrolled, there's a 50% fundraising discount for younger siblings, not exceeding $200 per family. As a non-profit organization, ICP relies heavily on fundraising to keep our tuition and costs low. The money raised by our families helps pay for excursions, family education speakers, rent, books, supplies, director/teachers’ salaries, playground improvements, fun events like our Halloween party, and many other costs associated with running a preschool.
HOW DO FUNDRAISERS COUNT TOWARDS MY REQUIREMENT?
We have plenty of fundraisers scheduled to help you reach your requirement! Many of our fundraisers have a percentage given to your fundraising requirement. When a fundraiser kicks off you will be notified of that percentage in the paperwork you receive.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T MEET MY FUNDRAISING REQUIREMENT?
The remainder of your fundraising balance will be due on at the end of the school year. The treasurer will send you an invoice.
WHAT OTHER OPTIONS DO I HAVE TO MEET MY REQUIREMENT?
If you do not wish to participate in the school fundraisers, you may choose to opt-out by paying the minimum fee of $150 (one child)/$200 (multiple children). Please remember that we are a non-profit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible. To get the tax deduction for this year you need to make your donation before December 31st. Also, please check with your or your spouse’s company to see if they will match your donation. Many companies have a matching program, and Microsoft will even match your volunteer hours in the classroom if you are an employee. It’s a great way to meet and even exceed your fundraising goal.
