With the Gift of a Donation
To maintain the superior education and care offered at CCDC, additional sources of income are required. Approximately, 25% of the CCDC operating budget comes from sources other than tuition. To assist lower income families a sliding fee scale is offered. Because a quality children's program needs small items such as crayons and large items such as playground equipment, no donation is too small or too large. Periodically, CCDC may have Missouri Neighborhood Assistance Program tax credits available for purchase. CCDC is a 501©3 non-profit corporation and all donations are tax deductible.
With the Gift of Labor
CCDC is often in need of skilled individuals to repair, maintain or care for the center building, equipment, playground, grounds and garden. Because CCDC is a 501©3 organization, all professionals will be provided with a tax-exempt letter for their efforts on the center's behalf.
With the Gift of Time
Young children require time by loving and caring adults. CCDC welcomes volunteers to read to children, to introduce new items and concepts and to be guest speakers. Student interns are encouraged to use CCDC as a place to experience quality education for young children.
With the Gift of a Tribute
Memorial and tribute gifts are one way to create a last legacy for your loved one. All gifts will be acknowledged with a thank you and will be tax deductible. Families may choose how their donation will be utilized. The Lewis Ash Memorial Fund is a special fund set up to honor a former CCDC Board member and to create a scholarship fund for families in need.
