Help make our future bright.
Donations from our members and extended community help us maintain a healthy and progressive environment.
Our dedicated staff, nurturing teachers, and passion for early childhood education help make Park West Cooperative an exceptional place for children to develop and learn. Maintaining a safe and stimulating environment, keeping up on the latest teaching techniques, and managing our facilities all have their own unique and changing costs. To help meet these needs, we rely on and appreciate donations from our members and extended community.
Your contributions, big or small, help us improve our infrastructure, promote ongoing education and curriculum expansion, provide financial aid to member families, and a variety of other improvements decided upon by our board of directors and committees.
And don't forget, when donating, check with your employer to see if they match charitable contributions!
