Giving Tuesday 2015 Results

Because of You

We exceeded our #GivingTuesday goal!

Thanks to you, we're going to create at least SIX (!) scholarships for Westchester families to get quality early care and education for their kids. 

Every milestone they meet as children and each accomplishment as adults will have its roots in your generosity.

Thank you!

To help raise visibility for the Child Care Council’s 2015 #GivingTuesday campaign and increase donations, TD Bank is sponsoring a social media challenge. Beginning on November 23rd and culminating on December 1st (#GivingTuesday), TD will donate $1 to the Council, up to $2,500 total, each time someone likes, shares or retweets specified Council Facebook and Twitter posts about #GivingTuesday. In addition, the Child Care Council’s Board of Directors will match all individual contributions, up to a total of $3,000.

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 on Giving Tuesday - December 1, 2015 - to support our child care scholarship campaign, the Early Opportunity Fund. We have many testimonials from scholarship recipients who tell us - sometimes through tears - about the relief they feel being able to go to work without worry, knowing their child is safe, loved and learning. We want to give this gift to more families!

Do we have the child care and after school programs families need?

Whether you are an employer, a community leader, an elected official or work in the Westchester child care/after school field, it's important to know how our early care and education community is doing.  Join us to hear the latest data on supply, cost and quality and for the results of our latest parent survey on their child care experiences.  White Plains Public Safety Commissioner David E. Chong will talk about why access to programs for children and youth matters to law enforcement.
