Donations are the heart and soul of all non-profit corporations and Willow is no different. In order for this Vero Beach alternative private school to keep tuition affordable, we rely on donations. We receive donations from friends and family of the school who live both near and far.
How does Willow use donations?
Willow uses donations in a variety of ways. We use the funds we receive to supplement our general operating expenses. This can include:
- paying for specialists to come in and work with our students.
- purchasing new equipment for the school
- buying curricular materials for our classrooms
Alternatively, we can use the money for designated programs or projects as well. In the past we have received donations for specific items such as:
- a keyboard
- school bus
Sometimes donors want to underwrite a program such as our music program for a school year or make a donation to pay for a child to attend the school for free for the academic year. We have also received monies to help children attend our three day field trips as well.
Like many non-profit corporations, Willow operates on a deficit budget requiring the school to fund raise. Each year we have been able to meet our school's financial needs through local fundraisers here in Vero Beach as well as through nationwide campaigns educating people about the alternative ways we work with children here in our Willow classrooms.
There are many ways to donate to The Willow School. We accept:
- Payments made through MasterCard, Visa or American Express
- Donation of securities, stocks or bonds
- Matching Gifts
- Gifts in Kind
Each of the above has a designated webpage. Please feel free to learn more about how you can help Willow continue to provide a quality education to children. Our future depends on it.
