TEN Reasons Why You Should Support Horizons of Kent and Queen Anne's

  1. Horizons has been providing academic and enrichment opportunities to children in our community since 1995. We have a proven track record of success!
  2. We invest in our students' achievement by building long-term relationships with our scholars and their families. A Pre-K student can remain in our program through high school!
  3. We provide a six-week summer program, a school-year program, and a high school leadership program to inspire our students to achieve new possibilities. We provide year round support!
  4. Our summer program is hosted by the Kent School, Gunston School, and Washington College. Our students enjoy an abundance of resources and experience six-weeks of inspiration on these beautiful campuses.
  5. We provide "Let's Talk" character education and leadership training to encourage our scholars to make a difference.
  6. Our personalized instruction is led by caring teachers. We offer a 1-to-5 staff-to-student ratio to maximize learning.
  7. Every child in our program learns to swim, visits interesting places, and enjoys wellness activities to instill the importance of self-care and a balanced life.
  8. Our program is tuition-free and is supported by caring people like YOU!
  9. Changes to Charitable Giving Tax Deductions included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, & Economic Security (CARES) Act will allow taxpayers who do not itemize to now deduct up to $300 on their tax return. People who make larger gifts will be able to deduct a much higher amount. An individual will be able to make a gift cash and deduct it up to 100 percent of their adjusted gross income for the year 2020. This provision could allow a person to make charitable gifts that eliminate his or her tax burden. Contact your tax advisor for more information.
