In the past, you may have attended the “GO Gala” or “A Taste for All.” This year, in lieu of an event, we are announcing “@Home for Concordia.” Don’t get dressed up. Don’t hire a baby sitter. Don’t look for parking or ride share. There isn’t even a date! It’s a “No Go” Gala! Just stay “@Home for Concordia.”
While it may sound cliché, it couldn’t be more true: Now more than ever, we need your support.
Concordia needs to be there for our children and families. Concordia Early Childhood programs are in-person with rigorous health and safety protocols. School-Age 365 now has full-day, in-person e-learning support for children of working parents. Teen Leadership instructors engage with teens virtually across Chicago at a time when relationships and connections are so vital.
But this requires additional:
This adds up to more than $50,000 a year; $12,000 a month in extra personnel and $1,400 a week for supplies. For our children’s programs, this breaks down to $150 per child a year.
Won’t you join us “@Home” for Concordia and help continue the growth and opportunity for hundreds of young children, youth, teens and their families—all from the comfort of your home.
As a learning organization, Concordia Place is committed to continued improvement. We have learned that distinguishing between the Concordia Place and Concordia Day brands was not necessary.
Starting May 1, all visitors to concordiaday.org will be redirected to day.concordiaplace.org
By unifying around the sole use of the Concordia Place brand, we will provide clarity and focus on our mission to serve families and provide both care and education for their children.
