Without support from businesses, organizations and the community, our mission to improve child care in Georgia would be impossible. We extend a sincere thank you to all those that share our vision and help us reach our goals. Below are several opportunities. Please contact Jeff Ader at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-479-4181 to inquire about partnership opportunities. Download QCC’s Partnership & Engagement Menu.
“El Día de los Niños” Annual Fundraiser
The Latin-themed cocktail party features specialty drinks and food, a silent auction, and a “Wall of Wine.” El Día de los Niños has raised over $725,000 to support QCC’s programs and services that directly serve Georgia’s most vulnerable children. Sponsors (both cash and in-kind goods and services), silent auction items, donations of wine for our “Wall of Wine,” and volunteers are all needed to make this annual event a success.
Volunteer Events (At Office or Child Care Center)
QCC can accommodate groups of up to 30 volunteers at a child care center for a variety of projects (e.g, mulching, painting, garden bed installation). QCC also offers on-site projects for up to 100 volunteers. Past on-site projects include building puppet theaters (pictures) and PVC painting easels (pictures), as well as assembling parent-child engagement kits. QCC typically seeks a tax-deductible donation to help cover the cost of supplies for volunteer projects.
Emergency Child Care Holiday Drive
During the holiday season partner organizations collect new clothing, books, and toys for children served through QCC’s Emergency Child Care Assistance Program. QCC supplies holiday drive boxes to its partners and can also provide workplace ornaments that list each child’s specific wishes and size.
“Baby Business” Early Learning Game
This game is a fun way to engage small groups (4-6 employees per game) at your office to learn about the importance of quality early learning opportunities for young children. The game involves each player taking on the role of a community member (parent, child care provider, businessperson, and public official) and then advancing through a series questions, scenarios, and fun activities before collectively investing their points for the final challenge. Our goal is simple: have fun and learn something. Download PDF flyer.
(Fun) Workplace Presentations
Whether you have parents of young children on your staff or are just interested in learning more about the importance of early learning issues, QCC can present a fun interactive 30-minute presentation during the day or at lunch that communicates the importance of early learning opportunities and how they impact our community.
Pro Bono Projects & Services
QCC is always looking to expand its capacity by engaging its partners in pro-bono projects and services. These can range in size and type, including: marketing, event planning, web design, research, legal, strategic consulting, media, data analysis, and organizational development.
ALL-GA-KIDS Child Care Referral Resources
In an effort to promote family-friendly workplaces that understand the importance and challenges of raising a young child, QCC offers free ALL-GA-KIDS child care search resources and information to its partner organizations. ALL-GA-KIDS is a free child care, after school, and summer camp referral service which provides more than 25,000 referrals each year for parents throughout Georgia. These resources help parents understand and access high quality child care.
