Urgent - Fundraising for our Dream School and Community Center


Dear Sir or Madam,

St Louis Modern Chinese School (SLMCS) has been leasing teaching space from Parkway School District in recent years. Our children could lose the opportunity to learn Chinese language and culture if the Parkway School District refuses to renew our lease. Therefore, we need your help to build and/or purchase a building for our children, and a home for all Asian people to gather together to celebrate holidays. It is a great opportunity for each of us to contribute to the community and share the honor of building a home for all of us.

SLMCS Board and Management have been making continuous effort searching for an ideal building for our school for the past several years, and recently have located one building in a very nice location. However, we do not have enough cash to purchase this building (short by $600,000). We need your generous support by either donating or lending to SLMCS as soon as possible (preferable before December 5).

A. Donation for our Dream School and Community Center

Your donation to our school (registered non-profit organization 501c) will be tax deductible.

1) Donation of $300,000 for the name of the building. We will name the building as you wish.
2) Donation of $100,000 for the name of one of the major rooms.


For the following donation amount levels, your name will be glazed into a gold, silver or bronze plate.
1) Platinum level - Corporation donation amount of $10,000
2) Gold level - donation amount of $5,000
3) Silver level - donation amount of $3,000
4) Bronze level - donation amount of $1,000

B. Lending money toward our Dream School and Community Center

SLMCS Board and Management Team need your support of lending money to help with building our community center and dream school. Please choose from the following options:
1) No interest borrowing - the school will pay back the amount of borrowing over a term of 10 years
2) 2% interest - the school will pay back the amount of borrowing plus annual 2% interest payment over a term of 10 years (minimum lending amount of $10,000)
3) 5% interest - the school will pay back the amount of borrowing plus annual 5% interest payment over a term of 10 years (minimum lending amount of $50,000)

Several committees will be formed to handle various activities after the building is purchased including Finance Committee to oversee all income receipts and expenses to ensure borrowed funds are paid off according to loan agreements. Other Chinese schools in USA have purchased school buildings through donation and loans. They have set a very good example for us to follow. Please reply to us through the contacts below as soon as possible, or find us at Parkway South Middle School (760 Woods Mill Road, Manchester, MO 63011) every Sunday afternoon at 1:30-5pm. Thank you!


Yours truly,
St Louis Modern Chinese School Board
