Support Harbor Child Care

Explore The Different Ways You Can Help Support the Children Enrolled at Harbor Child Care

Harbor Child Care is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that does not receive public revenue. Harbor centers fundraise at the center level in the spring and fall seasons. The Executive Office executes special fundraisers on a broader scale. As a not-for-profit agency, we can only charge tuition that covers the essentials of the budget. Funds raised by fundraising and donations support scholarships for families in need of tuition assistance. It also provides the “extras” such as music, art, and trips and occasionally for capital expenditures such as new or improved playgrounds.

Other Ways You Can Support Harbor Child Care

We accept in-kind donations of goods and services such as toys for play, books, and furniture. We do not take stuffed animals, toys that help toddlers stand or crawl, cribs, car seats, walkers, bouncy seats, or highchairs.

We also need support for approximately 30 Harbor families-in-need during the Thanksgiving and December holidays. Food drives begin in early November for non-perishable items, frozen turkeys, and gift cards. We also conduct an Adopt-A-Family program, whereby donors buy clothing and gifts for a Harbor family-in-need. We collect sizes, toy wish lists, etc. in confidence and pair donors to families appropriately.

United Way of Long Island

We are a member agency of United Way of Long Island whereby families can designate their contributions to Harbor Child Care if they are part of a United Way campaign at their place of work. A family’s employer may also provide a matching grant option for charitable contributions, or a foundation for charitable donations.
