Growing Minds, Blooming Dreams


Garden Fund 2023-2024

Our school is a place where seeds of knowledge are sown, nurturing the growth of young minds. It is through the collective efforts of our dedicated teachers, engaged parents, and supportive community that our school continues to flourish.

I invite you to consider how your continued support can make a meaningful impact in the second half of the school year. Here are some specific areas where your donation can contribute to the enrichment of our students' educational journey:

1. Enriched Learning Materials: Your support helps fund the purchase of hands-on learning materials, ensuring that our classrooms remain dynamic and engaging spaces for exploration.

2. Extra Opportunities: Contribute to activities such as field trips, clubs, and music programs, providing our students with opportunities to explore and develop their interests.

3. Scholarship Fund: By contributing to our scholarship fund, you can enable students facing financial challenges to access a CGS education, opening doors to a brighter future.

4. Essential Staff Support: Ensure our talented teachers receive competitive compensation, empowering them to provide high-quality education and guidance to our students.

Thank you for being an essential part of the City Garden School family. Your support is vital in creating an environment where learning thrives and students flourish. Together, let's make the second half of the school year a season of giving, learning, and growing.

City Garden School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is sustained and enriched through gifts made by parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends. This vital support ensures the school’s ability to continue to offer the most relevant and inspiring education to children today and far into the future. Your tax-deductible contribution to the Garden Fund helps fill the operating budget gap and pay for equipment, facilities and utilities, and faculty and staff salaries. Garden Fund contributions are essential to the school's day-to-day operations, as tuition does not cover the full cost of the education provided here. Your generous support ensures that City Garden School will continue to grow and thrive in the coming years. Together we are creating something very special for our children and for future generations–a place where each individual can realize his or her full potential through goodness, beauty, and truth.

Why Should I Consider a Recurring Gift? 

A monthly or annual commitment can help you keep track of your giving, cut down on annual solicitations, and ensure that you continue to support CGS each and every fiscal year. Many people find recurring gifts to be the easiest way to support the school and mission that are so meaningful to them.

How Can I Use a Matching Gift to Make the Most Impact?   

If you work for a company that matches employee gifts to nonprofit organizations, your donation may be doubled. If you already have a matching gift form or web application from your employer, please follow the instructions, fill it out and return it to us. If you don’t know if your company has a matching gift policy, check with your Human Resource department.
