Dear Friend:

Millbrae Nursery School has been serving families of the community for 70 years and it is one of the oldest cooperative nursery schools in California. This longevity is due largely in part to the community support and the private sector in our fundraising events.

Every year, Millbrae Nursery School holds several fundraising events to help underwrite the costs of running a non-profit school. Currently, we are planning our annual Spring Silent Auction to be held on April 24, 2010. All proceeds generated will go directly to the school to purchase supplies, maintain our facility and provide scholarships.

We are hoping you will make a contribution of a gift certificate or prize that could be used at one of our upcoming events. Your donation will be acknowledged in our donor list. If you are able to support our school or have questions, please feel free to contact me or our school directly to make your tax-deductible donation. Our 501(c)(3) Tax ID number is 94-1225371.

On behalf of the families we serve both now and in the future, please accept our warmest thanks for your consideration. If you have any questions please call the school or me directly (650) 642-8100 and I would be happy to discuss our fundraising efforts with you.
