You will hear a lot of talk about “raising in-kind” during the year at your school. We have to match every five dollars that we receive to serve your child from the federal government with one dollar of locally raised in-kind services or cash (20% match). We will never charge you a fee for the program. But we can value the time that you and your family or neighbors volunteer to help your child and teacher at the center or at raising events to help match the grant. There are definite rules and guidelines for in-kind and fund raising. Your Center Director will give you a packet of information with the rules and forms for documenting your volunteer time and services.
Some examples of “IN-KIND” are:
Reading to your child
Time spent and miles traveled to doctors and dentists.
Time spent with Home Visitor
Time spent and miles traveled to the center for meetings, volunteering in the classroom, kitchen, office, field trips, or custodian/grounds work.
Don’t forget: consultants are contracted with RCCDC at discounted rates.
IMPORTANT- Turn in all “IN-KIND” to the Center Director Assistant at the end of the month so she/he can enter all volunteers into PROMIS. The CDA will then send your entire center’s “IN-KIND” to the Accounting Department by the fifth of the following month. Do not hold and turn in several months at once or wait until the end of the fiscal year. We need your “IN-KIND” today!
