Support Adeo

Adeo is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Classes take place in the homes of host families and are taught by volunteer teachers. Adeo works very hard to keep tuition and operational costs as low as possible. However, tuition revenues do not cover all the costs of the organization and Adeo relies on donations, large and small, to operate.

Ways to Donate
Please consider making a tax-deductible gift online or by phone.

Matching Gifts
Many employers match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. Please consider helping Adeo by inquiring about gift matching with your company. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Adeo Tax ID: 13-3586949

Volunteer
Contribute time or talents to Adeo. Please, contact the Adeo office if you would like to help.

Become an Adeo volunteer teacher: As an Adeo teacher, you will commit to teaching for one year and will receive training on the curriculum. You will be assigned a mentor to offer teaching support to you throughout the year. Adeo organizes events where teachers can socialize and meet other teachers and parents. Adeo teachers have often shared that teaching in Adeo is one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences of their lives.

  • Applications will be considered starting mid-May. Please note that teachers will need to complete an interview with Adeo staff members, undergo a background check, and complete a short child safety video training as per the guidelines of the Archdiocese of NY.

Host my child’s class: As a host, you will facilitate a space in your home for your child’s Adeo class. Please note that the host will need to complete a background check authorization form and a short child safety video training as per the guidelines of the Archdiocese of NY. Also, an adult from the host family must always be present in the home while the class is in session. Class locations are determined in late August/early September, and we will contact you with more information.

Be a class representative: As a class representative, you will assist the Adeo office by being the main point of contact between our office and the other parents in your child’s class. The selection of class representatives will be finalized in early September.

Social Events: Host occasional get-together events for your child’s small class or a school group breakfast/cocktail to socialize and exchange ideas with other parents and Adeo representatives.
