On March 17, 2018 the Hanna Fenichel Center for Child Development will be holding its annual spring fundraising event and auction at The Lux Art Institute in San Diego. Our theme this year is the Hanna Farmer's Market and will feature the best in delicious and tasty food and beverage.

What is the Hanna Fenichel Center for Child Development?

  • Located in Solana Beach, it is a non-profit nursery school serving the families of North County

  • Founded in 1975 by the San Diego Psychoanalytic Institute to study early childhood development and named in honor of famed psychotherapist, Hanna Fenichel

  • A nurturing community offering the highest quality early childhood educational programs structured to meet   the developmental needs of children, 18 months to 5 years and supporting each child’s sense of self and innate passion for learning

This fundraiser is very important to us because, like many independent and non-profit schools, there is a gap between the cost of tuition and the true cost of providing high-quality care and education. The success of our event depends on contributions from sponsors like you, who generously donate various items to be put into our silent and live auctions.

We are asking for donations in one of the following forms:

  • Physical merchandise or gift certificates for products and/or services

  • Monetary Donations

  • Corporate Sponsorships

A donation form is available to fill out and return or submit online, along with your donation, at the addresses below or to the Hanna representative who contacted you, by January 30th, 2017. With funds raised this year, we hope to continue our lower playground improvements, provide new technology to our classrooms, construct a more efficient entrance way, and continue the expansion to our atelier.

How can we help you?

  • You’ll be recognized in our pre/post event promotions, program, and in our year end newsletter

  • It is a fantastic opportunity to market to an upscale demographic and receive repeat business

  • Your donation is tax-deductible! You will receive a thank you letter with our Tax ID # (95-304-2028) to serve as a receipt for tax purposes

Thank you for your consideration and support of the Hanna Fenichel Center for Child Development. We look forward to another successful event due to your generosity.
