Strengthening the Center to become an even greater force for social change
With assistance from foundations and corporations -- and individuals like you -- who understand that an investment in the LeMoyne Community Center is an investment in the region's economic future, the Center will be strengthened and will become an even greater force for social change.
The Center seeks funding from individuals, as well as foundations and corporations, to support specific projects and provide for the Center's sustainability. Primary sources of funding include grants from private family and community foundations but the need for more funding exists. Contact us to donate and to see where your help will be put to use.
Today the Center is its own entity and partners collaboratively with organizations in Washington and adjacent counties. Here is a partial list of organizations and agencies that help us meet ongoing operating costs to run our programs:
Keep our Center strong for generations to come
There are many ways to help. One is to give the gift of time. Our volunteer teachers, mentors, and helpers are the very heart of our Center.
Financial gifts enable the Center to expand and enhance community-based programs and purchase much needed furniture, equipment and supplies. Your contribution can help our Center change and improve lives, resulting in healthier families, neighborhoods, and communities.
The LeMoyne Community Center is an IRS Code 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that relies on your continued interest and financial support. Your donations are tax deductible.
A plan for community engagement and impact
To enhance our capabilities to maximize each child's potential and better serve our community, a three-phase plan to evolve the LeMoyne Community Center is envisioned for the future has been put into effect.
Phase one is complete. An addition to the Center, made possible by stimulus funding, houses classrooms and conference rooms. The second phase will include an inter-generational sports arena where all ages with varying levels of sports abilities can assemble. Finally, the third phase involves construction of a building to house programs that will advance workforce opportunities by providing job training and employment placement counsulting.
The Center is now used to operate the Community Action Southwest Head Start Program for low-income children. Our Center has come full circle from the days of a special teacher, Miss Pearle Harris, and her desire to give underprivileged preschoolers a "head start."
