Registration is now open for the 2021 CCR Seeds of Change Annual Event
Child Care Resources is excited to announce the launch of registration for the 2021 Seeds of Change Annual Event taking place Friday, October 15th at 7 PM.
This year’s event will have some changes, but the biggest change will be moving from a traditional afternoon luncheon to an evening virtual event. The Annual Event is a fundraising event, and the funds will support CCR programs and allow us to provide exceptional services for the thousands of children, families, and child care providers across King and Pierce Counties.
The work CCR has done over the last year continues to make a difference, and we could not have done this without our community of supporters. CCR’s commitment to children, families, and child care providers has never been more realized than during the COVID-19 pandemic. The stories we have heard from parents and providers in this challenging time inspire us and underscore the importance of our work. This event will be a time for our community to come together in partnership and in support of the future of early learning to ensure ALL children have the opportunity to succeed in school and in life.
Register today and join us as we look to plant the seeds of change for our future.
Creating Change in Philanthropy
Over the last year, CCR has gone through big changes in the way we view and practice philanthropy and giving. Our fund development team has a dream and strives toward a more inclusive and equitable development program. A program that values money and time equally and embraces CCR’s values in anti-racism. Through careful research, the fund development team discovered Community Centric Fundraising (CCF). CCF started in Seattle and is a movement to evolve how fundraising is practices in the nonprofit sector, prioritizing community.
As an organization that is modeling Community Centric Fundraising, we recognize that every person in our community of supporters plays a role in ensuring that every child can suceed in school and in life. By creating a space where every contribution is valued and every dollar raised at the event funds out vital programs, we know we are creating a better future for all.
We encourage our community of supporters to learn more about Community Centric Fundraising and come along with us as we continue to strengthen our community and create equitable practices for all.
