St. Carries Center is a 501(c)(3) and all of your donations are tax deductible. We offer memberships to those who are interested in supporting our projects and expanding the reach of education to make a difference. In the United States we are writing grants for family literacy projects for children and families at risk. We utilize activities such as art, music, and physical activities to support academics like reading comprehension, math, and science. Our lessons utilize the theme of water and entrepreneurship to make them meaningful and relevant to students, teachers, and parents from around the world.
St. Carries Center SMART Academy generally operates until the State Testing starts. State Testing has started and some of our students have nowhere to go after school. They have conditions in the home which are not child friendly. Therefore, we have decided to try and stay open. The parents can’t afford to pay the full cost of the program, but they are all paying what they can. We are seeking sponsors for at least $250 per child to continue until the end of the school year. We will start the grant writing process to secure funding for summer school. Please donate what you can.
Our major expense is liability insurance for the program and we cannot operate without liability insurance. Any contribution is greatly appreciated!!
I want to help St. Carries Center stay open year round. Here is my Donation:
Platinum: $10,000 and Above
Honorable Mention: $500
