Be the Difference Today
While The Day Nursery is closed, many paying families had to suspend tuition, which creates a significant impact on our operating funding. From virtual class sessions to daily lesson plans to emotional support for both the children and their parents, Day Nursery teachers and staff continue to work hard, keeping our families connected and engaged during this difficult time. Any donation you can make today enables The Day Nursery to continue paying our exceptional staff and to open up strong when we are allowed to do so. Quality early childhood education must be available to working parents as the State opens up and businesses start to rebuild the economy. Your donation today will have a real long-term impact on the future.
CARES ACT: The new federal law enacted in response to the COVID-19 crisis expands charitable giving incentives and allows taxpayers who take the standard deduction to also deduct up to $300 of charitable contributions to qualifited charities for the 2020 tax year. For those who itemize deductions, the CARES Act allows for cash contributions to qualified charities, such as The Day Nursery, to be deducted up to 100% of adjusted gross income for the 2020 tax year.
Together we can unlock the potential in every child to create a strong educational foundation that lasts a lifetime. Become a Day Nursery Champion for Children through our monthly giving program. Donate here and choose the recurring donation option.

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, firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions on how to donate stock.
