We just received our first very generous donation for playgroup scholarships!!! Our donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, was once a single-mom of two young children, while studying at a community college. She knows first-hand how challenging it was, and how a supportive community around her family would have been a wonderful help.
We are grateful to the college for support, and have been able to keep our fees extremely low (especially in comparison to the community), for some families it's still a hardship. We have set up a fund and will distribute scholarships to LAVC student-parents and then community parents if there are spaces and funds.
Our goal is to build this fund to include everyone who wants to be here! Please, think about making a tax-deductible contribution. A gift of $140 covers the cost of a parent and child for a semester. And remember that if you are a LAVC student, ask for a scholarship application. You deserve it!!!
