Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Members of AECA and other Arkansas supporters of early childhood education are transforming children and families across the state every day and we want to support them with your help.
The mission of AECA is to connect, develop, and represent Arkansas early childhood care and education professionals. In doing so, we elevate the diversity, equity, and vibrancy of the profession and to ultimately promote high-quality care and education for all Arkansas children and families.
Your Giving Tuesday donation will support the development of early childhood professionals in Arkansas as the generation that will provide high-quality care and education for children and their families statewide. When we invest in early childhood professionals, we can show up for children and families across Arkansas even stronger – together!
Any donated funds on Giving Tuesday will directly support scholarships to the 2022 SECA Hybrid conference to allow early childhood staff in our licensed programs who are unable to financially attend to be able to do so. (We will be sending an email to the membership with instructions about how to apply for SECA scholarships.) After Giving Tuesday, we will know how many scholarships we will be able to offer.
There are four different ways you can support our professional development scholarships on Giving Tuesday:
- Use our donation link on our website
- Make a check to AECA, mark them for Giving Tuesday and then mail them to AECA, P.O. Box 4291, Fayetteville, AR 72702.
- Email misty[a]arkansasearlychildhood[dot]org with the amount you wish to donate and you will receive a secure link to use a credit/debit card to donate.
- Instead of shopping on Amazon.com, visit AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com). Top tip: save it in your bookmarks so you don’t go to amazon.com again. Choose AECA as your charity and Amazon will automatically send us a small percentage of your purchases.

Your donation of any amount makes a difference.
