Karen Dwyer Scholarship Fund

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will never be shortened.”
-Author unknown

Karen Dwyer was definitely that candle. For over 20 years she let her light shine through the children she taught and the friendships she made. In the spring of 2007 the CDLC community lost a dear friend and valued staff member when Karen passed away after a prolonged battle with breast cancer. She faced this battle with courage, dignity, strength, and, typical of Karen, a smile for everyone she encountered. She is deeply missed, but her spirit lives on.

We have established a Karen Dwyer Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships for children who otherwise might not be able to attend CDLC preschool. The money we have received thus far has been put in an investment fund, with the intention to draw off a portion of the interest each year in order to provide scholarships.

It is our hope that the fund will continue to grow, providing educational opportunities for generations to come. To accomplish this, we need to get the word out and we are asking for your help. Any donation would be welcome.  If you are a Thrivent member, returning the enclosed Giving Plus form further extends your gift through matching funds.

We are asking that you might consider giving a tax-deductible gift to the Karen Dwyer Scholarship Fund. Karen had a passion for education and an amazing ability to inspire children to learn. Please help us ensure that her gift of knowledge will continue to be passed on to children, the light of Karen’s life.

CDLC General Operations

As you may guess CDLC goes through a lot of paint and paper in a year, not to mention crackers!  Your tax-deductible donation to the CDLC General Operations Fund will help CDLC to continue to provide quality preschool programming at an affordable price.

Thank you for your support!
