Ellis Early Learning Fund
The Ellis Early Learning Fund is an annual program of inviting and recognizing charitable support at leadership levels. Fund donors will receive tickets to our annual benefit as part of their membership. Special recognition opportunities are available at levels from $1,000 to $100,000 a year.
One time or monthly gifts of all sizes are welcome and appreciated.
Delivering the Ellis experience is possible thanks to our giving community, including generous past and present parents, whose support assists in bridging a 25% gap in revenue for Ellis' operating expenses.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to support Ellis. Please reach out if you utilize Fidelity Charitable®, Schwab Charitable®, or any other DAF so we can help you direct your gift to Ellis.
