Support MCPC

MCPC is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a tax exempt, 501(c)3 organization, so your gift can be tax deductible.

Our Tax ID # is: 94-1218624.


A gift of any size supports MCPC’s ability to sustain high-quality school programs and keep our school affordable for all families.


You can help make a difference and get involved in a number of ways. When it comes to securing our future of our children, there is no action too small. In advance of your support, thank you!

You can give a gift in a number of ways:

 

Donate Online via PayPal

Making a gift of cash is as simple as authorizing a charge from your credit or debit card via MCPC’s PayPal online donation page by clicking the “Donate” button. (You don’t need a PayPal account; donations can be made using credit card or electronic transfer from your bank accounts).


Donate By Mail

Making a gift of cash is as simple as writing a check* payable to “MCPC” or “Montclair Community Play Center”.


Checks may be mailed to or dropped into school mailbox at:

5815 Thornhill Drive

Oakland, CA 94611


*Alumni members, please indicate your child & class year (e.g. Jane, 2010)


Matching Gifts
Many companies match gifts made by employees to non-profit organizations. Increase the impact of your gift by asking your employer to match your contributions to MCPC.

Gift of Securities
Gifts of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are a great way to support MCPC. You can donate the securities to MCPC and receive a tax deduction. Stock donations can be made easily through an electronic transfer; the stocks are then sold for their cash value. Please contact the fundraising chair at fundraising@mcpckids.org


Participate in “Purchase % Contributions”

MCPC earns money by partnering with businesses that contribute a portion of their proceeds to our school when we shop. It is an easy way to raise funds for our school by simply doing things we already do.  A description of each program follows.


Amazon

What you can do: Shop at Amazon

How it works: Simply use this link (TBA) to do your shopping, and Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase total to MCPC. Share the opportunity with your friends and family network too, so they will help raise money for MCPC every time they shop.


Bookmark MCPC’s home page on computers and devices and then click on the Amazon link to start shopping.


Sports Basement

What you can do: Shop at Sports Basement

How it works: On your next visit to Sports Basement, register as a Basementeer and select Montclair Community Play Center as your beneficiary. Basementeer’s receive 10% off their purchase and Sports Basement gives 10% back to MCPC. There is no fee for our school families, as long as you register by December 31, 2016. Thereafter, a one-time $25 fee will be applied for membership. Again, tell friends and family about this program as well.


eScrip

What you can do: sign up for eScrip and designate Montclair Community Play Center as your beneficiary

How it works: register any or all of your grocery loyalty cards (i.e. Lucky’s, Safeway Club Card) and debit/credit cards and whenever you use these cards, participating business partners contribute a percentage of your purchase to MCPC.
