Buy a brick fundraiser
St. Charles County Extension Council sponsors an ongoing brick fundraising effort to keep our programs and services at their current level. With funding from St. Charles County government reduced by 54 percent since 2008, we are forced to find additional sources of financial support. For each $100 donation, a brick will be inscribed and added to the pathway around our flagpole. Donations are tax-deductible. Brick order form (PDF).
