Throughout the year the NIST Child Care Association sponsors several fundraising activities/events in which parents are encouraged to participate. Half the money earned from these fundraising activities is used for purchases that benefit the children, such as playground equipment, special activities, and capital equipment. The other half is used to partially fund our Scholarship Assistance Fund. Some parents choose to donate money directly to the Center, in lieu of participating in fundraisers. All support is welcome, but does not alter or influence your child's placement in the CCC.

Tax deductible donations may be made to the CCC at any time, and are much needed as the CCA operates as a non-profit organization.
