Through the hard work and dedication of our current and alumni families, LCNS has met the needs of children and families for over 50 years. We are proud of the friendships, supportive environment and history that make LCNS a vibrant cooperative community. When you contribute to LCNS, you can see your money at work each day supporting children and families through scholarships, development of programs, maintaince our much-loved building and a creative curriculum. And glitter... lots and lots of glitter!!
Donated funds allow LCNS to thrive! Here are some ways contributions will be used:
Scholarships – Being an affordable school is part of our original mission and remains a priority for LCNS, and so is providing financial assistance to families wishing to be part of our community. The school is committed to providing need-based scholarships each semester.
Building/Facilities - Current LCNS families are continuing the legacy of good stewardship maintaining our aged school and grounds, but there are projects that require more funding on the horizon. For example:
- The wood floors throughout the first floor are in need of restoration (some replacement and refinishing)
- Our beloved tree house tree is slowly rotting and is slated to be removed in the next 5 years.
- The foundation of our building has needed repairs in the recent years, but a more permanent solution is being discussed.
- We are saving up to fill our building fund so our school will remain a safe and friendly place.
Endowment – To help ensure LCNS is here for years to come, an endowment was established in the late 1990s. Endowed funds are managed by the Douglas Country Community Foundation (DCCF.org) and their use is restricted. The income from these invested funds help keep LCNS on solid financial footing. Contributions to endowment can be made directly to LCNS with a designation of “Endowment”.
Class Supplies - Speaking of glitter... small contributions can make a big difference to our school. For example, $50 buys enough glue for a whole year! Help purchase your favorite color of paint: $30 buys a semester worth!
