GivingTuesday and SeedMoney

dollarsignThe Bennington Early Childhood Center is participating in two very important online fundraising campaigns in the next month.

Tuesday November 28th is Giving Tuesday, which is a nationally acknowledged day for people to recognize their favorite non-profit organizations.  Won’t you please take a moment to make a donation to the Bennington Early Childhood Center? (we have a Paypal donation button on our homepage)  Our staff are wonderfully resourceful about finding free and discounted classroom supplies and professional development opportunities.  Despite this fact, we spend approximately $6000 per year on these two line items.  Any donations that you give will help us to keep our classrooms fully stocked and provide our teachers with the trainings they need to stay up to date on the latest information about teaching and caring for young children.  All donations are tax deductible and if you provide your mailing address we will send you a gift receipt.

From November 15 through December 15 we will be raising funds through a SeedMoney campaign.  Two years ago we received a grant through this organization and were able to construct four raised bed vegetable gardens at our center.  The children and staff love the experience of growing our own vegetables and then harvesting and eating them!  Any funds raised from this campaign will go towards adding a fifth raised bed as well as fruit trees and bushes.  We are hoping to raise $600.

Thank you advance for your commitment to providing high quality learning experiences for young children in the Bennington County area!
