The Schoen Challenge

Guadalupe Center is expanding its Early Childhood Education Program with the addition of a new campus in Immokalee’s Jubilation neighborhood.

The new campus, which was made possible through a lead gift from Helene and Rich Monaghan, is now under renovation. It will feature six classrooms and accommodate up to 64 children ages 6 weeks through 3 years old. 

The Schoen Challenge

When making their $500,000 gift to the renovation costs of the new Jubilation Center, Sharon and Bill Schoen understood the need for operational dollars to cover tuition assistance for the 64 new children who will be served. The Schoen’s challenged us to raise the additional $500,000 in annual operating expenses needed for this new building.

Please help us meet the challenge presented by Mr. and Mrs. Schoen and consider a tax-deductible gift today to support the Early Childhood Education Operations Fund. Your one-time gift, monthly or annual pledge will help us provide high quality education for a child in Immokalee, and ensure that our new program remains debt free. 


Thank you in advance for your consideration to help us meet the Schoen Challenge and continue to break the cycle of poverty through education.
