Yes. Candeo is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, which accepts donations and contributions. Your investment is fully tax-deductible. Our school receives about $1600 LESS PER PUPIL than district public schools, and thousands less than private. We rely on outside contributions, annual giving, and volunteer hours to provide and sustain the level of education to which Candeo is committed.
Annual giving from each family is $1000 or more. For the 2013 - 2014 school year, every dollar goes toward building our new gymnasium. Once built, the funds go directly to the classroom, ensuring the following:
lower class size (goal: 20 per classroom)
competitive teacher salaries, raises, bonuses, and performance pay
Ample resources in every classroom
In addition to reduced funding, we do not receive money for facilities, land, equipment, or furniture, as district public schools do. Contributions from our families, the community, businesses, and foundations are actively sought to assist us.Please contact our office (link through our website “Support Candeo”) to find out more about investing in our program.
