How to Support MDO
MDO is a not for profit, 501(c)(3) organization. In addition to our tuition and fees, we rely on fundraising and grants to fund special activities and curriculum enrichment (storytellers, musicians, petting zoos, puppeteers, etc.). There are several ways you can support MDO as an individual or a business:
Make a Donation
All donations made to MDO are tax-deductible. Thank you for helping MDO to thrive and continue to offer fun, nurturing, educational programs!
Make all your regular Amazon.com purchases through Amazon Smile and select "Morningside Day-Out Inc" as your supported charity, and MDO will receive a donation equivalent to 5% of your purchases. This one is easy!
Once a month, MDO has a Spirit Night at a local restaurant or activity center. A portion of some or all of the proceeds from that evening are donated to MDO. Bring the whole family and experience our awesome community at large! See our Events calendar for specific dates and locations.
Help raise funds for MDO by purchasing labels through Mabel's Labels every fall at the start of school. They offer tons of cool styles for cups, lunch bags, clothing, shoes. They make a great gift too! Remember to select "Morningside Day Out (Atlanta)" as the school you're supporting.
Each year, MDO hosts several fundraising events. 100% of all proceeds from ticket sales, purchases, etc. go to fund our extra programs and curriculum enrichment. The 2015-2016 fundraisers include:
- Auction (Autumn)
- Pancake Breakfast (Winter)
- Book Fair (Spring)
As a parent at MDO, there are many opportunities for you to volunteer your time and skills to help our school. You can serve on our Board of Directors, which is almost entirely composed of parents, or you can fill a school function, event coordinator, or classroom role. If you're interested in volunteering, just stop by the office or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
