Giving Tuesday Now! You Can Help at This Crucial Time!
With our doors closed, our normal spring programming cancelled, and the future uncertain, the Hitchcock Center faces an unprecedented financial challenge.
But our planet still needs our help, so at the Hitchcock Center, we’re quickly developing new ways to fulfill our mission. Will you help support this work?
Your gift will help us provide children, families, teachers, and community members with these new initiatives — all in response to the pandemic — to educate and to inspire action for a healthy planet:
- A new interactive online weekly Saturday Science program for children and families with our delightful Hitchcock educator Aemelia Thompson;
- Four freshly conceived school field trips (Animal Adaptations, Insect Investigations, Ponding, and Mountains and Valleys) that are both virtual and live, to help teachers fulfill their commitment to science and nature education;
- Comprehensive online resources for parents and teachers providing hands-on science and nature activities for students at home, a pressing need right now;
- Fun and engaging online events like Nature Trivia Night to keep us socially connected in this time of physical distancing.
To support this programming we need to raise $20,000. Can you make a donation on this day of giving to help?
Nature can be a remarkable source of perspective and peace. Perhaps you yourself have found strength these past weeks through its power. Thank you for helping us share this wonder with a donation to the Hitchcock Center.
P.S. Do you want to become or find a Hitchcock Hero? Help support the Hitchcock Center by connecting out to your friends and family!
