Kids Yoga Open House
Celebrating CF Awareness month, CF Yogi style!
Last month, CF Yogi announced a new grant from Vertex for Kids Yoga in collaboration with Johns Hopkins and Beam! We're making an appeal to our donors this month to help fill some needs associated with the new grant, including:
- Back office support from our fiscal sponsor, Social Good Fund (including HR, financial systems, and 501c3 reporting)
- Required background checks for our instructors who will be teaching people under the age of 18
These are additional costs of this program that aren't covered by the Vertex grant funds, which can't be used for overhead. (But with a bigger program to manage.. we're going to have an increase in overhead! 🙃)
In this fundraising campaign, we're seeking to raise $2,000 to help fill the gap. If you'd like to support by simply attending the event and representing our community, that's great! Here is the link to register in Zoom. But if you're willing and able to support us with a financial contribution, you are welcome to do so by selecting a donation amount below!
As a Model A fiscally-sponsored project of Social Good Fund, 92% of our donations go directly to our program, and 8% goes to Social Good Fund who provides us with our administrative back-office support and nonprofit legal status.
Hi everyone! Today's event was SO MUCH FUN. Heather led us in a mindful moment with a sun salutation song, Colleen led a dog-themed yoga flow, and Myra led storytime with a reading of the book 65 Roses for You by Jessica Burns -- with a special appearance by the author herself! And we gave away a CF Yogi water bottle to one lucky winner, who will receive it in the mail soon. :) (The recording was stopped before the pet show and tell for the privacy of the children and families present... but it was absolutely adorable!)
The event recording is now available here on YouTube: https://youtu.be/qJQHE7p9noI.
Thank you to our generous donors for supporting our Kids Yoga classes and events like this one, there will be many more to come thanks to your support... and of course, the grant from Vertex!
CF families who would like to join us for Kids Yoga starting this summer can register now here, and we'll reach out when we know our class schedule on Beam! https://CFyogi.org/register-now
