Montessori School needs HELP 2 Open

My daughter's current school is closing and has 7 children.  In an effort to relocate the school, we have been working diligently for the past 6 months to obtain a Grant and we received confirmation that the Grant will cover our 1st 2 years of Operating Costs!  We are extremely grateful for the Grant and were ready to move forward building out the new location we have secured, which will be able to accommodate 50 children instead of the 7 we now have!

Along with the good news of the Grant, the bad news is that the Grant money can not be used to cover the build-out of the current space, but is only to be used for defined Operating Expenses.  The current space does not meet code for us to utilize it as a School and must be brought up to Florida Fire Code and Health Code.  We have hired a Licensed Contractor and they are ready to begin building out the space immediately.  We have raised $8,365 to date and need the balance to cover the construction costs.

Please help us raise the rest of the money needed for the build-out and not lose this Grant money we have worked so hard to obtain over the past 6 months.  With your help, we have the opportunity to impact the lives of many children in years to come in our small community of Port St. Joe, Florida.  If we are unable to raise the money to bring the building up to code, we will not receive the Grant money for our Operating Costs and all of our efforts will be lost...  We are scheduled to begin build-out October 1st.  Please help our School and our Children!

Thank you in advance for any amount you can donate.  We are a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) with the State of Florida.
