Give to the Community School

One of the missions of the ECU Community School is to engage children in learning experiences that support their curiosity, creativity, inquiry, and intellectual growth. As part of this, the Community School strives to provide an environment for all of their students to fulfill this. In order to do this, the Community School has put together a fundraising list, listed below.

If you wish to donate to the school and would like that donation put toward any of the items on this list, specify how you would like your gift to be applied under gift instructions on the donation page.
