On December 3, 2019, non-profits, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
Save the date for AzAEYC Giving Tuesday!
AzAEYC has joined the #GivingTuesday community for a campaign this year to support our efforts as advocates for the early childhood profession and high quality early education for all young children.
Giving Tuesday History
Since 1912, Giving Tuesday has been a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back—#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
Why support AzAEYC on Giving Tuesday?
Providing a quality learning environment for young children is every bit as complex, and important, as teaching any of the upper level grades. But many still treat early educators as babysitters.
We are working to change that!
Assuring that those who work in the field of early childhood education are well-prepared to meet the needs of our young learners with a curriculum that will match new brain research is critical not only for children and their families, but for our future.
There’s simply no doubt about it. Early Educators are #BrainBuilders!
What is the AzAEYC Giving Tuesday message?
AzAEYC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization that works to advance the professional development of early childhood teachers so they have the resources they need to build the brains of Arizona’s youngest learners.
We support teachers through NAEYC professional memberships, access to quality professional learning, and through AZToolkit – an online tool to help early childhood business save time and money and improve the quality of services for children and families.
Every $25 helps us provide 1 hour of training to improve quality teaching
Every $50 provides a set of current, research-based teaching books into a preschool classroom
Every $100 gives 2 teachers a professional membership to NAEYC and resources to help ECE professionals be #brainbuilders
Every $250 gives 5 early childhood businesses access to AZToolkit – an online tool to help each build their local business and impact education for children, families, and the community
Every $500 helps fund the AzAEYC Scholarship – helping teachers attend college, participate in statewide training, or purchase much-needed classroom learning supplies
