We need
your help


Early in the 2020-21 Capital Fund Drive, we set a goal to surpass $50,000 by Giving Tuesday, which was December 1st. Thanks to the generosity of so many, we reached and surpassed that goal! This is our most successful campaign since 2016 and a clear demonstration that our community comes together when times are tough.

Our drive continues through the summer of 2021, and we are still welcoming donations. If you have not yet contributed and wish to participate, please make a donation. We have several company matches pending and we will continue to update our donor list. Your participation, in any amount, will allow the Purchase Community House, Purchase Day Camp and Purchase Children's Center to continue providing outstanding programs for preschoolers through adults. Browse our website for information on our programs.

Donor Listing 2020-21 Dear Supporters of the Purchase Community House,

Although the peak of the pandemic has passed in our area, the virus is clearly not gone. As we watch other states go through what we did in spring, our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this terrible illness. I hope that you and everyone in your family are healthy and safe.

The effects of COVID-19 are not just physical. As you may know, the Purchase Community House was forced to suspend spring preschool and after school activities, as well as cancel its summer camp for the first time ever due to COVID-19. This uprecedented event has caused us to reach into our reserves to continue operations. Although this is precisely why such reserves exist, it is critical that we replenish such funds in order to ensure that the Community House has a bright future. This will enable us to innovate and make critical investments in our infrastructure that will benefit children for years to come. The Community House has touched children's lives for multiple generations and will continue to do so long into the future. We urge you to help support us with a donation during this pivotal time. Children's safety, program design and staffing and safety have always been our primary guiding principles. Any donation is very much appreciated, and given our goal that each child's voice, participation and happiness comes before all else, we are asking you to consider a generous donation. Additionally, but only if you have the financial capacity to do so, please consider contacting us regarding several naming rights opportunities, including the Tennis Court, Pavilion and Lower Playground. As always, your donation will be tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Thank you for your support as we look forward to welcoming everyone back to our House as soon as safely as possible.

Sincerely,
Clare Conlin
President of the Board of Directors
