William’s Community School is a non-profit corporation dedicated to providing individualized education and supports to children with autism and other developmental disabilities in a nurturing and therapeutic environment. There are a number of ways to help and support our mission as well as the children and families who depend on our school to provide a high-quality individualized education.
(Building drawing icon) Annual fund: Donations to our annual fund are our largest need and ensure the continuation of our school. These donations are used for overall operational costs, including paying for our spacious facility, equipment and educational materials, and most importantly making sure that we have highly qualified and caring teachers to work with our children. To make a donation, you can mail a check to our school address, drop a check off in person, or make a donation using a credit card through PayPal here (put link).
(Stick child holding book icon) Scholarship fund: We use these donations as assistance for children who are in need of a better education but cannot afford tuition without assistance. These children often come to us after years of struggle with public school systems and legal battles to try and get their child’s needs met. Families who need tuition assistance submit a thorough application which is then reviewed by the scholarship committee. This is a committee of parents charged with evaluating applications and prioritizing where scholarship donations are applied.
(Stick person icon) Volunteering: We are a tiny school with many things to do! We love help any day of the week and also have several open volunteer positions that range from 2 hours per month to 2 hours per day. We frequently have large project days where you can volunteer for just one day to complete projects around the school from painting and building to typing and cleaning. Click here to get our current volunteer application. (Put link)
(Scissors icon) Household items: We are always collecting a variety of office and household items for different projects around the school, as well as hoarding those items that make for fabulous arts and crafts material. We love things like cork (if you love wine, please save those for us!), tools, fabrics, gently used paints and brushes. We also always need the ongoing office supplies like batteries, paper and printer ink (HP 564, Epson T026,T027, Canon 3e, 6), scissors, staplers, hole punches, laundry detergent and cleaners, toilet paper, towels, and tissues!
(Wishing star icon) Wish lists: We have wish lists full of items that our teachers and students would love to have. Please click on any of the below to see our wishlist for that site! Note – some of our wishlist items link to an item on a site (if site does not offer a wishlist). You can always find our wishlist by searching for the email address [email protected]
(AS icon) Amazon smile: If you shop on Amazon.com, please switch to smile.amazon.com instead! Just by making this tiny change, Amazon donates a portion of profits from your purchases to a charity of your choice. And if you pay for prime, no worries, because Amazon smile works exactly the same as Amazon and it is all the same account. Please choose us as your charity by searching William Mosing Center.
(Box top icon) Box tops: Save your boxtops from a variety of brands and products including Avery brand labels and office supplies, Ziploc bags, Hefty bags, Nestle products, Green Giant products, Juicy Juice, Pillsbury foods, General Mills products, Betty Crocker products. You can drop off boxtops at the school, mail them, use eboxtops to register them, or best ever – have all of your friends and family save them for us too!
(LFE icon) Labels for Education: Save your labels from a variety of products including BIC pens and products, Pepperidge Farms products, Post cereals, Campbell’s soups and juices, Franco-American products, Swanson, V8, and Dannon products. You can drop off labels at the school, mail them, or have all your family and friends help save them for our school!
(CC icon) Coca-Cola points: Do you drink Coke products like Sprite, Dasani water, Nestea or Powerade? Coke products have a code on the cap or inside the box that allows our school to earn points for school supplies and projects. Drop off caps or cut out codes and enter them on MyCokeRewards.com or drop them off at the school and we’ll take care of it!
