Dear CCC Families,
We miss seeing all of you and your children around the center. Since the center closed back in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve worked hard to provide support to our teachers and families. We hope you have been able to participate in zoom music classes with Dayita, use the weekly curriculum with activities for your children, and/or read articles we’ve shared on how to get through this crisis.
We have been able to continue this work without taking tuition payments, in hopes that you can focus on balancing work and family without the added financial burden. Our ability to do this, however, is dependent on our resources to pay teachers and staff during this crisis because 90% of your tuition goes to the Teachers’ and Staff’s payroll and benefits.
Years ago, we had the foresight to slowly build savings to continue paying teachers and staff in the event of a crisis. Today, this Emergency Relief Fund is being quickly depleted.
If you are able to do so, please consider making a gift to replenish the CCC Emergency Relief Fund to ensure the future of our center.
This fundraiser is replacing our spring event, Evening Under the Stars. This is an important source of income for the CCC so please consider contributing what you can to the GoFundMe fundraiser or consider donating all or a portion of the tuition you would have paid in March, April, and May to the CCC Emergency Relief Fund.
You can donate online through our GoFundMe campaign Replenish CCC’s Emergency Relief Fund or by check payable to the Children’s Center at Caltech, sent to 1200 E California Blvd, MC 1-133, Pasadena, CA 91125.
We look forward to when we can reopen our doors to welcome back your entire family. In the meantime, we hope you are able to support our teachers and staff.
Susan and Teresa
