You know the importance of an education that inspires and empowers. Everyday you see the impact compassionate, globally minded people have in the world and, perhaps more importantly, in our communities.
You also likely value education as one of the keys to nurturing a lifelong love of learning. After all, Inspired Learners experience joy in their work; Empowered Learners employ critical thinking in solving complex problems; Compassionate Learners care, listen, and serve; Global Learners know themselves and the world beyond themselves. And act accordingly.
It is the vital work of learning with purpose that our CLC Fund supports.
As a member of Cornerstone Learning Community (as a parent, teacher, grandparent, graduate, friend, and/or some combination thereof), you continue to shape who we are today and who we will become in the future. Your commitment to our annual CLC Fund (formerly known as the Annual Fund) is one way to ensure our success now and in the future.
What is the CLC Fund? The CLC Fund is our foundation of fundraising here at Cornerstone. As such, your tax deductible gift helps initiate and sustain programs throughout our school community and it directly impacts each student’s experience. We challenge our community to reach 100% participation as a way of demonstrating a shared commitment to transformational learning. Your gift, no matter the size, makes a difference.
How? Your contribution to our CLC Fund invigorates our mission to inspire and empower compassionate, global learners. From technology to field trips to innovative curricula, your generosity ensures our organization’s focus is right where it needs to be: on the students and their learning.
Additionally, our CLC Fund continues to be critical to ensuring student access to the highest (and most caring) caliber of educator. You help fund professional development so we remain the local leader in social emotional learning (also known as caring for the whole child), environmental education, and project based learning. Plus, you help ensure our International Baccalaureate teachers stay current with practices utilized in the best schools around the world.
In short, your gift influences the dedicated educators who care and nurture our children at the highest levels of the profession. (And they thank you for it!)
This year we are excited to announce that the first $5,000 raised will be used to seed our endowment. Translation: Your gift this year helps safeguard the legacy of a CLC education for the children and grandchildren yet to come.
We hope you will join our board, families, alumni (and former families), the faculty, and me in making a financial commitment today. We appreciate every pledge. No donation is too small. Simply fill out the pledge card and send it in (or CLICK HERE to fill out our electronic form). We aim for 100% participation. Every year we get closer and with your support, we can continue to inspire and empower our children with opportunities that will change our world for the better.
