Giving to SLCD - Supporting the Future of Extraordinary Teaching
Dear Parents, Grandparents, Family Members and Friends of SLCD:
As we are now into another extraordinary school year, we want to thank each of our generous donors who helped us to continue to grow and prosper last year and for the previous 32 years. We are certainly excited about the promise of another year filled with the best in language development, leading to an expansion of programs which enrich our student’s and individual’s lives. Our goal is always to support and educate our students and individuals toward the goal of an independent life, filled with contentment, joy and success.
Over the past year, we have asked our families and constituents to contribute to an ongoing “capital campaign” to support the school’s infrastructure and physical facilities through a series of monthly pledges. Due to the kind charitability of donors, we have received sufficient funds during this time period to install a high-tech security classroom and office space lockdown system in Glen Cove and to perform minor renovations to the Calvin Klein/Tommy Hilfiger retail training spaces in the high school. With HVAC units to replace and other important projects surfacing daily, we have decided to forgo the request for Capital Campaign gifts and commence an Annual Fund campaign which gives SLCD much greater flexibility in the use of donations that come in to the school. Those currently on a pledge payment schedule are asked to please continue fulfilling their commitment. Those who are not will receive specific Annual Fund mailings and other communications throughout the year. Overall though, you will see less communications about these donations if you make a pledge or give a one-time gift during the 12 month period. Please know that the dollars donated by generous people like you will be used by SLCD for its most prevalent needs, which are often unplanned and unexpected. We thank you for understanding this need to change and for trusting us with the discretion of your charitable gifts.
We are also very pleased to advise you that there will be some exciting and significant changes coming to SLCD in the near future, along with the announcement of a major capital campaign project. All of this, along with the extraordinary educational and community services we provide for your loved ones, will continue to enhance the experience and fulfillment each SLCD individual receives daily.
Please see the gift request form below if you would like to make a new annual gift or additional donation at this time--please print it, fill it out and mail it back to us at the Glen Cove location. If you have any questions or want to discuss a multi-year pledge, convenient monthly deductions or other giving options, feel free to call our Development Office (516-609-2000 x313) and we will be more than happy to assist you. Secure online giving will be also available to you in the very near future if you would prefer that method.
Thank you in advance and for helping the School for Language and Communication Development flourish for all!
