#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. We are participating in #GivingTuesday along with #ILGive to help the children of our Day Nursery to get a foundation in learning. Because we believe every child should have the opportunity to enter kindergarten ready to learn, regardless of economic background.
Without this opportunity, countless studies have proven that a child has a greatly reduced chance of reaching his/her potential in school and in life.
Since 1912, The Day Nursery in Oak Park, IL has been a leader in providing early childhood education to children, ages 2 1/2 – 6, of working families. We are the only full-time NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited early childhood provider in the community that provides financial assistance to low and moderate income families. Over 40% of our families require assistance. Your gift unlocks the potential for one of these children!
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many of our supporters focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
In conjunction with this worldwide event we are pleased to partner locally with #ILGive where a donation made to The Day Nursery on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 will not have additional fees, i.e., we get all the money donated by you. This is a direct link to the donation page. We hope you will click on that link and help support our continued efforts to provide quality and affordable education to those in need.
