Please “Give Local” April 25-26

Thanks in part to your generous Give Local donations in past years, CCS successfully added a middle school and will graduate our second 8th grade class this June! 

But our work isn’t over, and this year’s Give Local campaign is crucial to us. While still providing an excellent education, CCS is exploring its options regarding its building on Wolcott Street.

Beginning at 7:00 a.m. April 25 and ending at 7:00 p.m. April 26, donors will have 36 hours to make secure contributions to CCS at, or by clicking the button below. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. 

When you give to CCS through the Give Local online portal, we are eligible to receive cash prizes through time-specific challenges throughout the day. 

If you are interested, we encourage you to make gifts between 11:00 am and noon on Tuesday during WATR’s Power Hour. 

A list of all time-specific prizes is here on the Give Local website.

Because we are an independent school, we don’t get state funding and must raise the money each year to provide this exceptional education to our students, all of whom come from low-income or ALICE households.

Please make a gift, if you can, to the best of your ability. Every dollar counts to our students and families.

If you are not comfortable giving online, you have other options: 

  • Mail your gift to us at Children’s Community School, PO Box 1746, Waterbury, CT 06721.
  • Call us at 203-575-0569, x212 with your credit card and we’ll handle it over the phone.

Thank you for contributing to our students’ ongoing success!
