Fundraising

The Center’s fund-raising program is intended to purchase equipment or provide special activities for the children.  In planning fund-raising activities, we try to plan events that can be enjoyed by the entire family and/or to offer beautiful and useful products for sale.     You will be notified as fund-raisers are chosen.

Some of the money we raise will be designated for the Miller Fund.  The Miller Fund was established in 1994 to honor retiring Education Department faculty member Dr. James Miller.  The Miller Fund provides modest financial support to Plymouth State University students who have children attending the Center.

It is by no means the intention of the Center that the children should be involved in selling products or tickets to an event.  No child or family member is required to participate in any fundraiser.
