Giving Opportunities

 

There are several ways to support Center School students and the educational programs that make a difference in their lives. If giving by check, please mail checks made payable to Center School to 2450 Hamilton Avenue, Abington, PA 19001, with the purpose written on the memo line.

Please consult your tax professional for advice regarding tax-deductible contributions.

Center School is a place where children feel capable of achieving anything they set out to achieve. It’s a place where friends come from all walks of life that understand each other’s struggles, where every student is celebrated for their individual talents and applauded for their contributions to the community.

Contributions to our Annual Fund cover costs not included in tuition fees, providing services that make us better able to meet the needs of each child. These include artistic residencies, music programs, and sports equipment.

Leave a Legacy! From Bequests to Annuity Plans, talk to us about the many ways to ensure the long-term stability of Center School while you receive tax credits and other benefits through Endowment and Planned Giving programs.

The Center School Scholarship Fund offers aid to students whose parents could not consider a specialized education program without financial assistance.  They also provide tuition relief for current families in times of financial crisis.

United Way Donations: Our United Way Donor Option Number is 009850. Many companies have matching gift programs for which Center School qualifies.
