Fundraising at CPI


Fundraising is vitally important to the school. It provides funds for “extra” toys and equipment for the children, covers the cost of capital improvements, and helps to meet unexpected expenses and emergencies. As a small cooperative preschool, CPI depends on fundraising to provide enrichment to the curriculum and to keep our facilities in good shape. The Co-Directors of Fundraising work hard to plan exciting fundraisers each year. We hope to keep the FUN in Fundraising! Your support and participation is genuinely appreciated and greatly helps our school. While we don’t require member participation in all of the events, there is certainly something for everyone!  For more information please email our fundraising team by clicking here.

Holiday Shop/Pancake Breakfast

Each December we set up a little “shop” upstairs and allow the children to do their holiday “shopping” for anyone and everyone on their list! We have items for parents, grandparents, siblings, family, friends, and yes….even pets! The kids get a huge kick out of choosing their own gifts to give, and often have a hard time waiting to tell you what’s inside! (But that’s part of the fun, right?) We will also need some volunteers on those two days to help work in the holiday shop (essentially taking the children through and wrapping their choices).

Original Artwork

Later in the year, CPI students work on an original art project. Keep a look out in your child’s tote bag for a magnet depicting their work. These magnets are not free, but a fundraiser for our school. There are also many other items you can purchase just in time for Mothers Day! A catalog and instructions will accompany the magnet.

Your child will created a special work of art while at school, and this image can be printed on to magnets, mugs, T-shirts, trivets and other items.  These make treasured gifts for grandparents, uncles, aunts and babysitters. For program information, please go to .
