Private gifts and grants from individuals, corporations and foundations are vital to the Learning and & Loving Education Center's operation as classes are offered tuition free. The Learning and Loving Education Center, a non-profit organization, has been dedicated to meeting the needs of low-income families in our community for nearly 20 years. With the help of donors and volunteers, we have assisted over 3,000 individuals work towards increasing their skills and self-sufficiency.
The Learning and Loving Education Center appreciates the generosity of past donors who have remembered the center with monetary donations, bequests in honor of special people or occasions, and memorials. We can assist by providing any necessary non-profit tax-deductible paperwork and by providing memorial cards or other appropriate recognition.
There are two ways to donate:

The Giving Circle of the Learning and Loving Education Center invites the members
to invest in the women and children of the Center and support their efforts to improve their lives.
The Giving Circle asks its members to pledge an annual , renewable gift of $1500.This is the cost of educating a woman and a preschool child for one year. This covers the costs of supplies, books, teachers, preschool and all the funds it takes to operate the Center for a year. The $1500 per year breaks down to about $4.00 a day. It is a small amount of money, but it adds up to a great gift to each woman and child.
We invite you to join the Giving Circle and continue this much needed ministry. Your gift will help enable change: creating, nurturing and transforming – all part of the circle of life. Please contact us at (408) 776-1196 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
