As a non-profit early education center, VICCC heavily depends on many funding sources. Whether through local government block grants, fundraising efforts, or donations – each penny counts. Our children receive scholarships to cover the funding gap between aid-subsidy payments and parent co-pays. The average cost VICCC must cover is $8,000 a month; funds which come from donations just like yours.
One dollar, a hundred dollars, or a thousand dollars – it all helps.
There are several ways you can support VICCC. Our traditional online direct giving options include PayPal and GiveBigNRV (via Community Foundation of the NRV).
VICCC is also part of the Amazon Smile program (see directions below). Click on any of the donation icons below to be directed to that specific giving site. Thank you!

$200 (covers 1 child for 1 month)
If you’re able to give at a greater level, would you please consider providing a scholarship to one child, for one month? If you’re able to give even more, you may choose to sponsor a quarter year or full year for one child, or perhaps scholarships for multiple children one month!
VICCC goes above and beyond by utilizing a literacy curriculum in the classroom. Each month our classrooms work with a specific book – centering their learning activities around the featured book. At the end of each month, each child is given a copy of the book to take home and add to their home libraries This allows for consistent learning and recognition, behaviors which the children take home with them and encourage their parents to continue reading at home.
Although many, many books are read each day, our focus on these “Book of the Month” books are an important part of developing early literacy skills. VICCC offers a donation option called the “Book Club,” consisting of a $250 donation. We partner with Scholastic FACE to receive discounted book sets. Your tax-exempt donation will allow for the purchase of the monthly book to go home with every child!
If you are interested in donating at a sponsorship level, we have several options:
$500: Full Sponsor
Classroom Learning Environment: help support VICCC’s current classroom enhancement project. As a sponsor, you will provide the funds needed to develop and supply a new area for learning within the classroom environment. These areas range from “cozy” spaces and a children’s library collection to classroom redesign and greater focus on curriculum and development based materials.
Family Fun Events: an opportunity for families, staff, and volunteers to have a little fun! Sponsors provide fun activities, healthy snacks or meals, and learning materials for parents. Your funds also help cover the cost of staff paid hours, as they assist with the event. Volunteers also help handle the event’s festivities.
