The Story

We are a Reggio Emilia inspired preschool in west Seattle. For the past 7 years we have been creating an organic approach to education in an environment that is an extension of our families. We are so proud of what we have created in our community and hope to continue for many years. We have been leasing our building, and the owners have sold it to developers, So we needed to find a new home for our school. We found an older building that was in our budget. But the bid for construction to get out preschool set up in its new space was $378,000. The owner has gotten creative (even sold her house)  and has come up with $360,000 so far. We are hoping to use this site to document the progress of our upcoming fundraisers, which will include parents night outs, art auctions, direct give, adult sports leagues, community garage sales, etc. Thank you so much for your support!

We found a way to add donations from people paying through the website and as we added these donations/funds from date nights in we have made over 2500.00!! AND, We have a meeting with Craft 3 tomorrow! Craft 3 specializes in helping borrowers who can not get needed financing from traditional sources. We are hoping to be able to qualify for a loan through them that will take our "needed funds" down to a more manageable place. Fingers crossed!!

I am so grateful for all of our supporters and family and friends who are sharing our cause! $1000.00 is an amazing first week and I couldn't be more thrilled. We have our date night fundraiser tonight that we raised $420.00! I'm going to add notes to show that here as well but we had parents pay us directly for this to avoid the paypal percentage being taken out. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
