Waisman Center - How gifts make a difference
MATCHING GIFT AVAILABLE: Thanks to an anonymous donor, your gift will be matched dollar for dollar -- up to $3,000 -- during Day of the Badger.
The Waisman Early Childhood Program (WECP) is a model early childhood program with a developmentally diverse enrollment. One-third of the enrollment is reserved for children with developmental disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome. Your gift helps WECP provide a supportive and enriching environment that fosters each child’s social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development at their own pace through play-based learning experiences.
