Harbor Child Care is a private, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that does not receive public revenue. We hold a few fundraising events during the school year. Each Harbor Center holds its own fundraisers in the spring and fall seasons, aside from major ones executed by the Executive Office. Please check the Events section for upcoming and past events. As a not-for-profit agency we can only charge tuition that covers the essentials of the budget. Revenue raised by fundraising and donations is used for tuition scholarships for families in need of support and to help to provide 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 throughout the year such as toys for play, books and furniture. We do not accept the following: stuffed animals, toys that help toddlers stand or crawl, cribs, car seats, walkers, bouncy seats, or high chairs.
We also seek support for Harbor families-in-need during the holiday season. On average there are about 30 Harbor families that need assistance. We start food drives in early November and typically collect dry and canned goods for meal trimmings. We especially need frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving and will accept hams, turkey breasts and chicken stuffers for December meals. We also conduct an Adopt-A-Family program for the December holidays which has been quite successful and rewarding for many years. This entails buying food, clothing and gifts for a Harbor family-in-need. We collect the data (ages, sizes, toy wish lists, etc.) in confidence and pair donors to families appropriately.
We are a member agency of United Way of Long Island whereby families can designate their contributions to be allocated to Harbor Child Care if they are enrolled in a United Way campaign at their place of work. Certain employers may also provide a matching grant option for charitable contributions, or a foundation for charitable donations.
