Children's Learning Center greenhouse

Rosser Koerber, 4, waters plants in the greenhouse at the Children’s Learning Center in August 2019. The greenhouse teaches kids the science behind how plants grow, as well as new words. Being able to graze the growing vegetables is the big draw for the preschoolers. The Learning Center is one of three organizations joining efforts to raise $400,000 for education and childcare. 

Three Jackson nonprofits are teaming up to raise funds for children’s learning programs.

The Children’s Learning Center, Jackson Hole Children’s Museum and Teton Literacy have created Champions for Children, an initiative intended to bridge steeper-than-usual funding gaps.

In usual years those three nonprofits collectively raise about $1.6 million to fill in program needs that are unsupported by tuition, membership fees, government aid and other funding streams.

This year they expect an additional $400,000 to be needed.

The Bank of Jackson Hole led the charge with a $30,000 donation, a press release said, and fundraising will be open until July 31.
