Thank you for your interest in helping to raise $27,000 for a 2nd full-time teacher's assistant in our Kinder classrooms.
As you all know by now, Waters Today has generously offered to front this money for the Kinder parents. This is the only way that Mrs. Crespo can "open" the position via CPS - with all $27,000 in the account.
That being said, in order for Waters Today to feel confident in fronting this money, 50% of the $27,000 will need to be secured by January 4, 2015 and the remaining by February 6, 2015.
Meaning -- we need to have ALL $27,000 committed by January 4th and at least 50% "in the bank". If needed, the remaining 50% that is promised can then be collected by February 6th.
On the next page you will be able to make your pledge.
A Question Parents May Have:
Q: If we don't reach our goal, will we get our pledge returned?
A: Yes, because ALL donations will be held -- checks will not be deposited and credit cards will not be charged -- until we know if the goal has been met.
As a technical point - if funds were deposited to Waters Today immediately upon receipt, absolutely no funds could be returned due to the strict laws that govern an Illinois 501(c)(3).
