Childcare Fundraising at the Children's Institute
General Mills Box Tops for Education Program
The Children's Institute can redeem the Box Tops Coupons from participating products for 10 cents each. The dropoff boxes are located in or near each classroom. There are also larger dropoff boxes located outside room 103 Rackham and in the hallway near the large gym.
The money raised from this program goes into our Family Fund, which is childcare funding support for low-income families attending the EMU Children's Institute. Details and a listing of eligible products can be found here: http://www.boxtops4education.com.
Cambells' Label for Education Program
The Children's Institute is participating in the Campbells' Labels for Education Program. We can redeem the Campbells labels and UPC from participating products to earn educational equipment for our school. The dropoff Campbells Soup containers are located outside the main office and in the hallway inside the security doors. Details and a listing of eligible products can be found here: http://www.labelsforeducation.com.
Funds collected from these and other efforts help support our Family Scholarship Fund. This fund is childcare funding support for low-income families with children ages 18 months to 6 years attending the EMU Children's Institute. It is an award to help families with their tuition at the Children's Institute. Its distribution is based on both financial need and hardship. The money awarded is based upon funds contributed to the Children's Institute Family Fund.
The number of awards will vary depending upon the number of applicants that meet the requirements. It will also vary depending upon the amount of money available. The Children's Institute Family Fund maximum award is $300.00 per family. Once the $300.00 cap is reached, the family is no longer eligible for an award.
Letters inviting parents to apply will be placed in your child's mailbox at the Children's Institute.
