Thus a donation to “Hamilton” is to ALL children in the Hamilton CSD; to “Cazenovia” is to ALL children in the Cazenovia CSD.
Of course, IT IS NOT FREE. Surprised?
It is FREE to the families, but it’s $30 per year per child to the local community.
The total cost to the Dollywood Foundation per child averages $125.00 per year for books, postage, administration.
The Dollywood Foundation REQUIRES annual LOCAL FUNDING of $30.00 per child.
Once local funds are committed, the DWF makes up the difference. A 5 to 1 match.
The program, administered by Literacy Coalition of Madison County NY, works through all public libraries and covers the whole county. GRANTS helped us start. Thank the Core FCU, Rotary International, Gorman Foundation, CNY Community Foundation & Konosioni Honor Society. Our most significant funding has come from families in the county, especially the Dorothy C. Lichtenberg-DeHart Memorial Fund. WE continue with support from local organizations and individual donations, all matched 5-1 by the Dollywood Foundation.
