After less than 5 weeks of fundraising, the HPS Community Play Yard Committee is thrilled to announce that we have reached 59% of our fundraising goal! This is a momentous occasion because the generous donations from our community, parents and corporate partners has helped us to reach our first funding goal of the project. This project can officially move ahead, albeit on a limited scale. No more skinned knees in 2018!
Thank you to those who have helped us to reach this milestone, however there is still work to be done. We look forward to reaching our full fundraising potential so that we can create the full play yard depicted in the renderings, creating an amazing green space for our community and including all the wonderful educational and developmental amenities the plan has to offer.
There is still time to take advantage of the match offered by the Hyde Park School Foundation. They have pledged to match all donations up to $50,000, but this opportunity ends November 14th. Please remember that no donation is too small! Larger grants from area foundations that we are pursuing are dependent on a high participation rate from our HPS families.
