Every event is open to current, alumni, extended, and interested families, as well as community members. First Fridays run monthly from October through June. There are no First Fridays during July, August, & September. Join us each First Friday at Moonstone Preschool from 6 - 7:30pm as we take a look at what we have made throughout the month!
Children attending the event are the responsibility of their parent/guardian.
Annual Dinner & Auction Fundraiser
We're happy to announce that Moonstone's 7th Annual Dinner and Auction will be held on Thursday, April 6th from 7pm-10pm at Percy St. BBQ!
To a avoid hosting multiple small fundraisers, the preschool decided to combine everyone's efforts into one bid annual event! The Moonstone Family Association (MFA) teamed up the school's administrations and board to create the Moonstone Preschool Annual Dinner & Auction. The event has successfully raised funds of the preschool since 2010. Overall the fundraiser has developed many parts....
Take The Staff to DinnerThis an opportunity for participants to help the Moonstone teachers attend the event for little to no cost. contributions are collected at the reception desk of the school. A thermometer display shows how much money is raised until the dinner event.
SolicitingWe lean on our community at large to solicit auction items, ads for the auction brochure, and sponsorships. Our goal is to collect between 200-250 items to auction off. Some families or business' prefer to sponsor our annual event through cash donations. (All donations are tax deductible) Donate Now!
In addition to donations, we also solicit ads for our auction booklet. Ads consist of business & school advertisements and personal/family acknowledgements. They range in size from business cards to full pages. Purchase an Ad Now!If every family contributes 2 donations and 1 ad, we would reach our goal!
Online AuctionOur online auction is hosted through Bidding for Good, who provides an online platform for non-profits to create and organize accessible fundraising events. This is a great way to get distant relatives and friends to support our cause!

Community ImpactIn 2008 Moonstone Preschool completed a major expansion and relocation project, which included a $500,000 rehabilitation of a new space at 750 S. 11th Street. Due to its strong program and reputation, Moonstone’s unique arts-based educational model has made it a magnet in the Bella Vista neighborhood. Moonstone truly serves as an anchor in this community and as a community unto itself for families with young children. As the City of Philadelphia seeks to attract and retain families, assets like Moonstone are critical to achieving that goal.
