2016/2017 FUNDRAISING INITIATIVES


Total Fundraising Goal: $8500

Cordova Bay Preschool has served the Cordova Bay, Elk Lake and surrounding community since 1949, it offers a quality parent participation preschool experience.  The school is a registered non-profit organization.  Co-operative preschools are administered and maintained by the parents who assist under the guidance of our three Early Childhood Educators.

Fundraising is an important part of our School as it allows us to maintain a reasonable fee schedule, enabling more families to participate in the rich, exciting learning experience of co-operative education.  Participation in a co-op affords both children and parents unique opportunities to share in the magic and laughter of preschool.

Our focus is on social fundraising initiatives that build a sense of community and form lifetime bonds between our preschool families.  Below is a listing of initiatives that you – as a preschool family or the local community – can support:
