We remain committed to being a trusted steward of public funds and private philanthropy that advances early care and education and the early childhood workforce in Wisconsin. We are grateful for our donors’ generous financial and in-kind support, and we will continue to work tirelessly on behalf of this critically important sector.

The Big Share®

The Big Share is just around the corner! We’re excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this impactful fundraising event, hosted by Community Shares of Wisconsin (CSW).

CSW is a membership organization made up of about 70 nonprofits, including Wisconsin Early Childhood Association, that advocate for social and environmental justice. Every March, CSW hosts The Big Share, an online day of community giving to support member nonprofits – like WECA. Your support fuels a movement that is based on partnership, support, and collaborative spirit.

We hope you’ll join us on Mar. 5 — and stay tuned: We’ll soon share additional details about how you can help #MakeChangeHappen!

Why I Give

“I donate to WECA because of its proven track record of being a valuable resource for child care professionals across Wisconsin. WECA’s efforts in advocacy and resource development ensure providers are equipped to deliver high-quality care to children. Families, in turn, know their young children are in an environment fostering their growth and well-being. I know my contribution plays a role in helping WECA make that difference.”
