Giving to Bigelow

Bigelow Cooperative was established in 1983 to be a parent cooperative where families alternated taking care of each other’s children in a residential home. Since then, Bigelow has expanded to meet the needs of a diverse and growing community with an emphasis on allowing children to learn through play. As a parent cooperative, Bigelow has always united to raise the funds needed to make sure their children have a diverse and vibrant early childhood learning experience.

Our community’s commitment to Bigelow is experienced through the generous financial participation donated every year. These gifts help to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of providing a quality education. In addition, gifts help to support the Bigelow Cooperative Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition assistance for families who would otherwise not be able to attend Bigelow.
