“Why me? or Try Me!”

“Things turn out best for people who make best of how things turn out.”   By John Wooden

Today’s title and quote spoke so loudly to me recently and I felt compelled to share both with you. I am constantly reminded how different “Friends of Copey” is. I typically find “Friends” to be positive, caring, unselfish, and most of all…never engaging in “woe is me” thinking. Let the title and the quote sink in, embrace it, accept it, and feel free to be it. The results of the first week of fundraising tells only part of the story about “Friends”.

Anne G. Broady Scholarship Fund (AGBSF)

AGBSF Goal: $600.00    Actual: $400.00  Deadline: February 28, 2021

We are moving well towards our Anne G. Broady Scholarship Fund goal for 2021. We are very pleased to report our first week’s  results.

Some donors are indicating plans to make their donation directly to the Copey Learning Center. This is wonderful. Please remember to send me a note regarding the donation amount and which fund the donation is being applied to. This helps us monitor our progress and determine when we achieve our goal.

Executive Director’s Salary Support (EDSS)

ED Salary Support Goal: $1,400.00  Actual: $730.00 Deadline: February 28, 2021

Also, we have made excellent progress as well for the Executive Director’s Salary Support. We are already beyond the mid-point after one week. The generosity is amazing as I repeat the wonderful motto we share as “Friends”…

“When many will do just a little…a lot will get done for kids!”

Please refer to the instructions below for making donations.

Seeking Volunteer Teachers

The Copey Learning Center is seeking volunteer teachers to help support the on-line teaching schedule beginning on March 8. This is a commitment of one hour per week and represents a wonderful opportunity to start, to build, or to expand a candidate’s teaching resume. For more details, contact me and I will put you directly in touch with the Copey Learning Center.

Donation Methods

The methods available for donating have not changed since the first fundraising campaign in 2014. If you are planning to be a financial supporter this year, the two methods below have served us well and without any complications.

  1. The Copey Learning Center’s PayPal can be used to make donations directly. Please access the PayPal system by clicking on….http://copeylearningcenter.org/. Find the PayPal logo in the upper right hand corner of their homepage. To make certain the Copey Learning Center recognizes your donation and how it should be applied, indicate in the comment section on PayPal that the donation supports the “AGBSF” or the “EDSS”.
  2. The alternate method is to send me your donation. Make the check out to me (Arthur Broady). Once received, your donation will be paid directly to the same Learning Center PayPal system as in Method #1. I will enter your name and designate where it is to be applied per your directions. The PayPal system will issue me a receipt which I send to you as “proof” the donation has been submitted to the Learning Center in your name. Make your check out to Arthur Broady and send to:
    725 N. Center Parkway, Apt. N-201, Kennewick, WA 99336  Phone:1-509-948-6416
  3. If there is a special request pertaining to 501c3 and IRS, please contact me.
