Learning Center Establishes Fund with the Floyd County Community Foundation

The Floyd County Community Foundation (FCCF), an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, is proud to announce that The Learning Center (TLC) has established a permanent endowment fund because of its desire to provide ongoing financial support for TLC and the individuals and families it serves in the Charles City area. The fund will support  activities at TLC such as staff education, equipment, supplies, and building upkeep. Donations to The Learning Center have always been tax deductible. Because this new fund is a permanent endowment established with an affiliate of a community foundation that meets National Standards, donors to the fund are eligible to receive a 25% state tax credit on their gift in addition to the normal federal deduction for charitable giving.

The Learning Center (TLC) Endowment Fund that was established with the Community Foundation is permanent.  This means that the contributions remain with only a portion of the earnings spent to support its needs and activities. The fund was established with the FCCF to ensure permanence, take advantage of a large investment pool, and receive endowment support services.

According to their vision statement, TLC is committed to giving all children the best by providing safe, high-quality learning opportunities, resulting in happy and productive citizens.  The staff at TLC stresses the importance of developing the whole child – intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.  A variety of classes at TLC cover each preschool stage: infant, wobbler, toddler, junior preschool, and preschool.  A Parents Advisory Committee meets once a month to discuss ways to improve the organization.  To raise funds, this committee participates each summer in the local Party in the Park, selling water and soft drinks. Proceeds are used for TLC supplies, student trips to local attractions, teacher appreciation, and a Christmas party for TLC staff and foster grandparent volunteers.
