FAQ

What is the fundraising requirement?

Families with one child in school are required to raise $150. Families with two or more children in school are required to raise $200. 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 improvement, and many other costs associated with running a preschool.

How do fundraisers count towards my requirement?

We have plenty of fundraisers scheduled for this year to help you reach your requirement! Many of our fundraisers have a percentage given to your fundraising requirement. When a fundraiser is kicked-off you will be notified of that percentage in the paperwork handed out.

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. Checks are made payable to Inglemoor Cooperative Preschool and can be left in the fundraising mailbox or the red tuition box (please include “fundraising requirement” in the memo).

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 $150 (one child)/$200 (multiple children) requirement out of pocket. Checks are made payable to Inglemoor Cooperative Preschool and can be left in the fundraising mailbox or the red tuition box (please include “fundraising requirement” in the memo). 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.

Please feel free to contact the Fundraising Chair(s) any questions or concerns you have.
