Development Fund: Kicking off with GA Gives Day!

Druid Hills Child Development Center has a long history in the Atlanta community and since our beginning in 1969, we have been here to meet the early education needs of families living and working in the neighborhoods surrounding our campus.   We raise funds annually to ensure our program can offer the state of art facilities and the well-prepared faculty the children we serve deserve.  Did you know that we spend over 70 cents of every dollar of tuition on our teaching staff?  Tuition provides the compensation and benefits required to obtain and retain the amazing faculty here at Druid Hills Child Development Center. To grow our program and to improve our facility we must fundraise to meet those goals. Below are more details on why we need this campaign, how past funds have been utilized, and giving levels:

Who: Development Fund dollars will directly impact the quality of education and care for the children attending our program through facility development and increased professional development opportunities for our teaching and leadership staff.

What: Development Fund Goal for 2017: $20,000.00

Why:  Our primary focus for this year’s Development Fund Drive will be to complete our planned playground renovation and expand our facility to serve more families.

With your fundraising support in the past we have added an infant playground, upgraded technology in our program to include creating a resource room for teachers with computers, printers, and a training space.  Along with these very important projects we have also replaced and added state of art furniture to our classrooms to ensure our children have developmentally appropriate environments.

The 2017-2018 Development Fund Drive at Druid Hills Child Development Center is kicking off with Georgia Gives Day!  Our goal is to raise $20,000 by January 1, 2018. These funds will largely go towards our playground renovation, and other special projects to include additional facility improvements that will allow us to expand our program.

We are striving for 100% participation from parents this year (all gifts make a difference). If your budget allows, please consider an annual gift (at one time or a sustaining gift monthly through Georgia Gives Day) at the following levels.


  • Platinum $1,000.00
  • Gold $500.00
  • Silver $250.00
