We have had the great honor and privilege of doing work with the Eugenio Mária de Hostos Charter School in Rochester NY. Here is what they had to say about working with us:

Dear Mr. Conklin,


On behalf of the Eugenio María de Hostos Charter School, thank you for your generous contribution, which will benefit hundreds of students in our community. We gratefully acknowledge the discounted rate you provided to our organization, which saved us approximately $275,000 in the demolition of the rectory on our Joseph Campus. Your support goes a long way in helping us achieve our goal of providing our student-athletes with a Section V Gymnasium.


It is the mission of the Eugenio María de Hostos Charter School to create a safe and nurturing community of learners where students earn the Seal of Biliteracy (English and Spanish), learn to advocate for social justice, and are prepared to enjoy and access what the world has to offer. We uphold the vision that if a child cannot learn the way we teach, then we will learn to teach how the child can learn.


The Eugenio María de Hostos Charter School is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. We acknowledge that no goods or services, in whole or in part, were received in exchange for this contribution; therefore, the full value of your contribution is deductible for income tax purposes. This letter is provided to express our gratitude and to comply with the rules and regulations promulgated by the Internal Revenue Service. Please retain this letter with your tax records.


At the Eugenio María de Hostos Charter School, we pride ourselves on providing our students with academic and personal growth. Your support reinforces our community’s support, and we promise you our commitment to the children at our school.


Once again, thank you for your kindness and generosity.


With warmest thanks,


Sandra Chevalier Blackman
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
