Thanks to the support of our amazing Preschool community we hit our match. But there's still more to do. Help us reach our goal by making a donation today!
In just a few short weeks, the 14th Street Y’s beloved Preschool Director Liz Hirsch will leave the Y after eight transformative years.
As we prepare to say goodbye, the Y is thrilled to announce the launch of the Liz Hirsch Legacy Fund, honoring the impact Liz has had on the Y, our Preschool and the hundreds of families whose lives she has touched.
The Liz Hirsch Legacy Fund will support the values and priorities that inform and inspire 14th Street Y Preschool, including:
- Professional development
- Child-centered environments
- Enrichment of the arts
The Liz Hirsch Legacy Fund will honor Liz's many contributions to the Preschool, including:
- Introducing the Reggio-Emilia approach that inspires our curriculum and surroundings
- Enhancing the aesthetic and environment of the Preschool classrooms and hallways
- Hiring top notch educators and ensured they received ample opportunity to grow, both individually and collaboratively
- Shepherding the renovation of our play roof into a space that encourages imagination, cooperation and constructive play
Join us in supporting Liz’s vision and impact by making a donation to Liz Hirsch Legacy Fund. All proceeds will support the 14th Street Y Preschool.
