Fund Raising

Come Partner With Us!

Our mission of serving the children and families of our community is met in part through the partnerships we make in support of that mission. These partnerships are crucial to the overall success of our program and directly impact the children and families we serve.

There are many ways to partner with Stepping Stones Learning Center, including financial contributions, contributions of supplies, toys and other equipment as well as many varied levels of volunteering.  As a 501(c)3 organization, all donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

We  host major fundraising events that are designed to support the overall agency and its mission, and typically include:

5K Run/1 Mile Walk to Make the Pieces Fit/Family Celebration - in support of our Autism Program

This annual race/walk/Family Celebration is the major event in support of our highly regarded Autism Program and takes place each Fall.  Held in our beautiful West Irondequoit neighborhood, this certified race attracts runners from throughout the region and is highly regarded for its beauty and challenge.  As part of the event, we also host a family walk and a kid's fun run!  Crucial to the success of our race are the financial sponserships we get from the community; several levels of which are available.  We also look for donations of gift certificates for the winners of each age group.

Masquerade Ball

This much anticipated event  is an exciting evening of fun and friendship.  The event consists of live entertainment, live and silent auctions, and much more.  There are several ways to join us in support of this event and include several levels of financial sponsorship, donation of auction items and so much more.
