Support Our Mission

The Children’s School has established a dedicated campus in Orange County. This one-of-a-kind school nurtures students in grades 3 through 8. We gratefully accept diverse charitable contributions from individuals and organizations, to include cash, real estate, stock and other marketable securities, as well as donor advised funds (DAF).

Every gift matters and will directly enable us to achieve diverse financial and operational goals, including, but not limited to:

  • Annual giving program
  • This fund will be used to subsidize tuition costs of students with financial needs that are unable to access other sources of funding to attend The Children’s School

Currently identified capital projects:

  • Expansion of the existing hardscape play area into an adjacent vacant parcel of land which would include a grass play area, fixed seating and play structures
  • Facility infrastructure upgrades to support our enrollment growth such as additional restrooms and modifications to office arrangements to provide for more small group meeting areas

Please contact us to learn how you can contribute to our success and the success of our amazing students.


Crinella Fund


Dr. Crinella laid the foundation for the development of The Children’s School. He was a loved mentor and advisor to the school’s staff and leadership. To honor his tremendous support and contributions, we aim to establish and annually grow a fund that will provide support where it is needed most and support his vision for children in our community.

To make a gift in his name find the gold ‘Donate’ button, and follow the instructions. When you make your gift, in the optional “Note” field, please indicate your gift is for The Francis M. Crinella Memorial Fund.
