Families need us now more than ever

Membership fees allow the programs at our Princeton, Bucks and Raritan centers to function on a basic level.

We rely on community support for the rest.

Where your donation goes

Resources to keep us running
...technical supplies (computers, monitors, printers), office supplies and supplies for classes such as art, cooking, makerspace and more. Your donations enable us to offer more to our teens without additional cost to them.

Enjoyable learning experiences
...expenses for Friday trips, overnight trips, community events, and space improvements to provide our members with the most pleasurable and fullest experiences that we can offer.

Opportunity for all kinds of kids
...membership fees for families who couldn’t otherwise afford to attend our center. PLC is founded on a mission to help all local kids who want or need a different learning experience than is offered in conventional schools. We are for people not profit. Your donations help us support our mission.

Learning Cooperative centers work with families at all income levels. We receive no federal or state funding and rely on our tuition and the generosity of our supporters. The Learning Cooperatives is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible donation allows us to continue to maintain a community that is economically diverse.
