Fundraising

Gonzales Preschool is a charitable organization that relies on fundraising proceeds and grants for its day-to-day operation, and to keep fees reasonable for families. Fundraising initiatives are organized by a parent-run Fundraising Committee.

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.

Holiday Wreath Program – A simple and much-appreciated fundraiser, as the holiday season approaches we sell fresh green holiday wreaths. Gonzales Preschool Earns: 50% on these purchases

Online Silent Auction – This is held in early spring and often raises the majority of our needed funds. All generous donations by local business’ and organizations are auctioned off and 100% of the proceeds go towards Gonzales Preschool.
