Building Upgrade Fund

newspaperThe Bennington Early Childhood Center has just launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for building improvements.  To make a donation please visit https://www.gofundme.com/tefcdun8 

The Bennington Early Childhood Center was established as an independent early childhood program in 2009, after being a part of the Bennington College campus for 75 years.  In the late summer of 2009 we started renting space from the Green Mountain Christian Center at our current Harwood Hill location.  Over the course of the past six years we have increased the amount of space we have rented and are currently working toward purchasing the property.  Property ownership comes with the added responsibility of building maintenance.  In addition to our goal of making the building more energy efficient by replacing the current lighting fixtures and bulbs, replacing the hot water heater, increasing insulation, and replacing a drafty door, we would also like to install a new business sign and carry out some small projects that will make the space more appropriate for our use as a preschool.
We are asking for help in raising funds to make these projects feasible without putting futher strain on our already tight budget.  Any donation, large or small, will be greatly appreciated!  
As an incentive, the Bean/McBee family has pledged to give the first $1,500 and then make another donation once that $1,500 is matched by you.  Ultimately, we would like to reach a goal of $10,000 so that we can complete as many small projects as possible.  Thanks in advance for your support!
