Dear Friends of Milestones,
Unfortunately, due to the concerns of the Coronavirus and social distancing, the Milestones Early Learning Center fundraiser luncheon that was rescheduled to June 22 will be canceled. While we will be unable to meet in person this year to celebrate the milestones that have been achieved in the last few years, we hope that you will consider contributing, either online or by sending a check to Milestones. Your financial support is invaluable to the children and families of our community
Why Give to Milestones?
Milestones is a nonprofit that has served our community since 1908. This long legacy highlights the value our community places on children and working families. Just over half of the children who attend qualify for subsidized care under state guidelines. Another 10% of the children are in foster care and also have tuition subsidized.
After the Governor’s Stay at Home order is lifted, families will need Milestones ready to resume care for enrolled children. Affordable, quality childcare allows working families to contribute their talents to our community, making our local economy stronger.
The luncheon is the main annual fundraiser for Milestones, and our goal of $24,000 is more important than ever. For the past three years, it has played a critical role in providing funds that allow the center to provide essential services for working families in our community. The proceeds of the fundraiser are used to:
- Subsidize the costs of families who are unable to make payments at this time and as they return to work
- Improve the facilities
- Fund day-to-day building operations
If you would like to donate to Milestones, there are two ways to do so:
Donate electronically via PayPal using your account, a debit card or a credit card. You make make a one-time donation or choose to make it as recurring monthly contribution.
Or, send a personal check made payable to Milestones Early Learning Center & Preschool. The check can be dropped off or mailed directly to Milestones:

Thank you for your consideration to give back to Milestones Early Learning Center and for your investment in our future so that our mission can continue to be realized to provide quality, accessible and affordable child care for children six weeks through twelve years old in a safe and enriching learning environment that supports children and families as they grow and develop.
