Supporting Friends Nursery School
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
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
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.
