Fundraising

Fundraising

For over fifty years the Family Cooperative Preschool has provided a loving and child-centered early chidlhood education in our community.

In 2002, Family Cooperative Preschool was faced with the choice of purchasing the schoolhouse building and the surrounding two-acre parcel, or relocating. Our Board of Directors unanimously voted to buy the property, thus ensuring that our nature-based curriculum and outdoor philosophy can continue for generations to come. The Board has also committed to meet our on-going purchase obligations through fundraising instead of tuition increases. Family Cooperative Preschool welcomes any donation to help support our school.

An ongoing fundraiser for our school is the sale of Bricks which are installed in our entrance walkway. Brick orders received by the end of school year are installed during the following summer. Click here for the order form.


Fundraising Events

Every year the parents and teachers of the Family Cooperative Preschool organize a series of fundraising events. The funds raised are used for a variety of purposes, such as financial aid, improvement of building and grounds, and purchase obligations. In addition, these events build a sense of community among the families at the school, both present and past.

Funds are raised in a variety of ways, including informal and organized social events, direct donations, and selling personalized bricks to help pave a commemorative pathway that will be part of Family Cooperative Preschool’s permanent history.

Here is a partial list of fundraising events for the 2019-2020 school year. Events are subject to change.


  • Brick Sales - This ongoing fundraiser helps you add your name or meaningful quote to the walkway in the entrance of the school. Order form can be found by clicking here.

  • Amazon Fundraiser - A no-brainer! Visit Amazon Smile through this link and confirm the school as your chosen charity. Then go to smile.amazon.com for your future purchases -- same prices, products and everything else as the regular Amazon site, but your purchases help support the school!

  • Annual Used Toy Sale! - This is a great end of year fundraiser to benefit our school. It is also a great reason to get going with your spring cleaning and purge your home of old toys, baby items and school supplies that are no longer needed. The sale is scheduled for May 4th from 9-1 in the parking lot of McAloons Liquors (531 Chickering Rd, N Andover). Families who choose to donate, please drop off toys between 830 am-9 am (there is no storage available prior to the sale).
    We are asking for volunteers to help out - set up, clean up and throughout the sale. We are also asking for folding tables to display items.
    Any unsold items will be donated. If you do not want your items donated, please return by 1 pm to collect them.

Cash Raffle

The annual cash raffle is an easy and exciting way to help the preschool!

The $500 cash prize will be drawn October 31.

Selling raffle tickets to your friends and family is an easy and fun way to help reach our goal of fundraising for the year. At $5 each or a booklet of 6 for $25, it's also very reasonable!

We do not require the children to sell items via catalogs or on the internet. We want our fundraising efforts to create more value for the school and for the participants. Winning a cash prize is convenient and exciting!

Again this year, you have the option to purchase raffle tickets online! We understand that convenience is important when raising money for our fabulous school and want to make it easy for everyone to participate for the chance to win $500! In addition, you can forward the URL for this page to non-local friends and family so they can participate too!

In addition to purchasing tickets online, we are also selling paper tickets. Parents, please check your mail-pouch for tickets. If you need additional raffle tickets or have questions, please don't hesitate to email fundraising@familycoop.org

Thanks in advance for all of your support!

25th Annual Fundraiser - Sponsorship Request


Today we Start with Play!

No matter what we venture to learn or discover, play is our starting point. Children who attend Family Cooperative Preschool start their days by exploring nature, working with their peers, and discovering the world around them. These early experiences are critical to the healthy development of our youngest citizens. The first 5 years of life mark the greatest period of brain growth, and a pivotal moment to influence the future development of a child and our community.

As a business leader, we invite you to join us in the joy of play, and to ensure children in our community are provided with pivotal early learning experiences!

Since 1952, Family Cooperative Preschool has provided services to children in North Andover, Andover, Lawrence, Haverhill, Boxford and Methuen despite their economic means. On Thursday, April 2, 2020, Family Cooperative Preschool will bring together the community in an effort to support the important work of this school and celebrate the play! We hope you’ll join us on the “playground.”
