Special Funds

Tuition Assistance Fund

The CEC is committed to diversity in its programs, including financial diversity. To that end, this fund was established by a family as an expression of gratitude to the Center as their child left our care to enter kindergarten. When fully-funded, the fund will enable families to receive the CEC's wide range of services when they otherwise would not be able to attend the program.

David Goetz Memorial Fund

This Memorial Fund was established in December 2004 by Eva and Russell Goetz in loving memory of their son and CEC alumnus, David Goetz. Its purpose is to enhance the presence of art in the CEC's curriculum and programs. The funds may be used for a variety of activities, including staff development, art materials and a mural for the Center.

Teachers' Endowment Fund

When fully funded, the endowment will help teachers receive the salaries they deserve without the need to significantly increase tuition and is a concentrated effort to provide fair and competitive salaries and benefits for our dedicated staff a reality. This fund was initiated in 2000.
