Trinity Preschool of Berwyn
2021 Annual Fund Donation Appeal
Dear Trinity Community,
It is hard to describe the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on all of us. For Trinity Preschool specifically, we have had to change the way we structure our classrooms and our programs, rethink the way that our staff and students are kept safe, and modify most of our processes for running a successful, loving, educational preschool. Children learn through play, touch and expression, and encouraging that while keeping safety at the forefront of our minds has certainly been a challenge. However, Trinity is dedicated to keeping its core mission at providing a safe, fun place for children to grow, make friends, learn and have fun.
During typical years, Trinity is able to run a variety of fundraisers, most notably our Silent Auction. In the past, these fundraisers have provided iPads for each classroom; equipment for our outdoor and indoor playgrounds; a security system and subsequent updates to that system; and a variety of other things that are of great benefit to the school. While we were thrilled to be able to run an online auction with a number of items this fall, we are still looking at 2 years without our largest fundraiser and without many of the smaller fundraisers that parents and our community are able to participate in.
In order to meet these challenges head-on, the Board of Directors has established an Annual Fund to help the school continue to meet its mission. The Annual Fund will allow you to make a contribution that will have a significant impact on the school and its administration. All donations are tax-deductible.
For the March 2021 Annual Fund, we ask our families, friends, and community to support our ongoing efforts for quality in-person education. Classes have moved outdoors and our staff has extended learning opportunities in nature. More time outside requires increased maintenance for outdoor storage, play equipment, and shelter from the elements. Our goal is to build a permanent canopy to provide extra shelter for our amazing outdoor classes. Our Annual Fund Campaign will run March 1, 2021 through March 19, 2021, ending with school celebrations and activities about St. Patty’s Day. Donations may be made by credit card online, or by check via mail or drop off at Trinity – click the buttons at the bottom of this page to select your donation type.
We appreciate in advance your consideration in supporting this year’s Annual Fund. Your contribution will ensure that children for years to come can enjoy the supportive, inclusive environment for which Trinity is known. Personally, I know that my children love going to school and learning because Trinity established that environment and attitude for them, and I am so grateful for that.
With warmest regards,
Emily Martin, President, Board of Directors
