A fundraising toolkit for educators

We understand that it can be a burden for many programs to send their teachers to the conference in Boise, but we also know the value it provides to your program. With the help of NAEYC, we have put together a toolkit for early childhood programs to help you raise funds to send teachers to the conference.  Download this  letter, make it your own and hand out to the parents in your program this holiday season. And if your program has a “giving tree” or a “wish list,” include information about the Idaho AEYC PDI and encourage parents to help fund a teacher to attend. You can also help your educators set up and share a GoFundMe page .

Here are some highlights from last year:
