Support CHN

CHN is in the process of growing the ways in which the homeschool community can support this statewide organization. CHN uses funds raised from this endeavor to pay for administrative costs such as maintaining our website, the newsletter service, doing outreach work to develop relationships with CT libraries and museums while providing them with hardcopy homeschool material, purchasing business supplies, purchasing discount museum passses, facilitating a homeschool conference and social events, future plans for scholarship funds, and support for group leaders. Please give your financial support so we can do our job maintaining a professional homeschool presence in Connecticut. While CHN is run by a Board of Directors, we are all volunteers who also homeschool our children. You can choose between GoFundMe, Boxtops for Education, Cafe Press, or shop on AmazonSmile!  Your support helps us to help you; the CT homeschool community.  Thank you!

GoFundMe
Who is CT Homeschool Network (CHN)?  CHN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation whose mission and purpose is to inclusively disseminate homeschooling support and information to current and prospective homeschoolers.  We work with others to monitor potential legislation that could change our current status of homeschool freedom. We offer support and information to CT homeschooler families and homeschool groups who also value and share our mission and purpose. As homeschooling continues to grow, we see new needs developing and our ‘Wish List’ is expanding to meet those needs.

Homeschoolers frequently forgo an additional income so a parent (or parents) are available to homeschool their children. This occurs at their own expense. CHN has operated to date, via a volunteer-based Board of Directors who are dedicated and passionate about homeschooling. It’s time for us to grow, and for the first time, we are reaching out to you for financial support so we can do what we do – even better. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today, in whatever amount you are able to. It is all appreciated and will be put to good use.  On behalf of the parents and children in the current and future homeschool community in Connecticut, we THANK YOU!

Boxtops for Education
Have you seen the lengthy list of companies now associated with the Boxtops program? It’s not just about food anymore! Ask your family and friends to save their Boxtops for CHN. Many families have organized their saved Boxtops in a plastic Ziploc bag, trimmed and ready-to-go. You can mail them any time to the CHN postoffice box. They will be mailed in to the Boxtops program regularly, so that CHN will receive two checks a year for participating in the program.

Mail your Boxtops to:
