Giving a little can help a lot.
Jocotepec DIF provides us with rent-free building space, electricity, gardener, and housekeeping.
With over 250 students, we need to raise money to pay for the ink and paper, printer repairs, markers, and more. We do charge our students 200 pesos per semester to help cover the costs, but that doesn’t meet our financial needs.
Once a year, we work with the Feria de Maestros selling the raffle tickets for the donated art pieces. This past year we earned 56,000 pesos which supported our printer repairs and the purchase of new tablets.
We are especially grateful to our monthly donors who use the Foundation for Lakeside Charities website to transfer funds to our account. This really helps us know that we will have a specific amount of money available each month.
Simply Joyful is hosting a dinner for us on August 24th. 50 tickets at 500 pesos each and all the funds come to us!
