Supporting Friends Nursery School

FRIENDS NEEDS THE HELP OF ALL OUR FRIENDS

COVID-19 has put a strain on our resources, requiring us to take steps to ensure the financial future of Friends Nursery School. Find out more about the support we need on our dedicated GoFundMe page.

A special message from our community of teachers, parents, and students - past and present.
(and possibly a puppet!)

Our COVID-19 GoFundMe fundraiser

Any donation. Big or small. Whatever you can afford. Would be hugely appreciated.
To donate, visit our GoFundMe page.

FRIENDS is a non-profit, non-discriminatory, play-based parent cooperative preschool.

You can support Friends by making a donation, or shopping at Amazon Smile

Each year,
we depend on gifts to manage our lean budget

Friends Nursery School is a non-profit 501©(3) corporation  (EIN: 92-1514802) that receives no funding from foundations or government agencies. We depend exclusively upon tuition, fundraising, and charitable contributions for revenue.

 

Check, cash, or stock are welcomed monetary gifts. 

 

Many employers in the Bay Area will match their employees’ charitable gifts - check with your employer to see what their policy is. These matching programs are a terrific way to boost your own donation.

Foundations considering a contribution, or individuals wishing to make a gift, should contact the Director for further information.

All contributions are tax deductible according to tax law guidelines.

In addition to general donations, at Friends, we rely on the following fundraising initiatives:

  • Our annual Fiesta, including a Silent Auction

  • Our Fall Fundraiser

Money raised is used for:

  • Teacher payroll, support, and related expenses

  • Scholarships

  • Upkeep and improvements to the building and yard

  • Payment of utilities

  • Purchase of art and craft supplies

How you can support us

Use Amazon Smile

Many of us rely on or actively use online shopping.

 

So, if you're shopping on Amazon, Amazon will give a small percentage back to Friends, if you sign up for the Amazon Smile program.

 

Your shopping experience and pricing will be exactly the same, and it doesn't cost anything to sign up. But your spending will enable Friends to get a little back.

Start at smile.amazon.com.

 

Let us know if you need some help setting up FNS as your beneficiary.
