Leave a Legacy That Will Last Forever

The Fun Time Academy Legacy recognizes supporters who have a passion for the education of children and want to ensure that their love of quality pre-kindergarten education lives on for generations to come. A pre-planned legacy gift is one of the best routes for leaving a long-term impact at Fun Time Early Childhood Academy. Legacy giving provides a level of support that amplifies our ability to fulfill our mission of educating children from low-income working families in the future. All members of the Fun Time Early Childhood Academy Legacy Society share a dedication to investing in education for years to come.

Being a Fun Time Early Childhood Academy Legacy Society member involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations. It does allow us to thank you and recognize you for your lasting generosity.
