What could be more rewarding than flushing your money down the new TGM toilets?

The COVID-19 pandemic stopped all our classes and cultural events but the Masaryk School has stayed busy! At the end of April, we have started a long overdue remodeling project. Upon their return to the school in the fall, the members of our community and our children will find fully renovated and redesigned bathrooms on the ground floor and upgraded common pine room.

Thanks to your help in the summer of 2019, we were able to put a brand new roof on the building. As with all our previous building projects, we will not be able to do it alone and would like, once again, ask you for your help and support. The estimated material and labor cost is $23,000. We have already raised $12,700. $10,000 was pledged by an anonymous donor and $2,700 will be covered by a grant from the Czech government. Will you help us to get the remaining amount of $10,300 by August 31, 2020? Your donation is tax deductible. After we receive the contribution, the TGM secretary will send you a confirmation letter for your income tax records!

There are two ways to contribute:
1) Checks with the code FLUSHING on the memo line can be sent to: T. G. Masaryk School 5701 W 22nd Place, Cicero, IL, 60804
2) Online credit card contributions can be made through PayPal at: https://www.paypal.me/MasarykCzechSchool/
In 2021, The T. G. Masaryk Czech School will celebrate its centennial and will host the 10th Annual Conference of Czech Schools in the USA and Canada, with Czech government officials and representatives present. Help us ensure we have only the best seats in the house! 🚽

ANKETA PRO KRAJANY 🇨🇿🌏✌🏿

Ministr zahraničních věcí Tomáš Petříček se domnívá, že Česká republika by si význam svých krajanů ve světě měla pravidelně připomínat. MZV proto navrhne vládě prohlásit jeden den v roce za „Den Čechů v zahraničí“.

🧻BATHROOM FUNDRAISER 🧻 – update #1

We are flushed away by your generosity! 2 weeks ago, the school approached the community and asked for your help with the common room and bathrooms reconstruction! You have sent $2,950 so far – thank you so much for your generous support! We have $7,350 to go!

Ken Dvorsky, one of our biggest supporters and volunteers, will match all donations up to $5,000 received between July 1-15. Thank you for such a kind act of openhandedness, Ken! The first flushing is yours! ❤️
