We can not do that without the support of donors and business and community partners. Your support makes it possible for The Day Nursery to make a quality early childhood education accessible to all families who wish to enroll.

Gifts of Stock

Giving appreciated stock to The Day Nursery is a strategic way to increase tax savings – you can claim an income tax charitable deduction and avoid paying the capital gains tax you would pay if you had sold the stock, rather than give it to therapy. Contact Cari Christoff, cchristoff@thedaynursery.org for instructions on how to donate stock.
