Become a Member of the Alliance

ALLIANCE MEMBERS, WORKING TOGETHER – JOIN US!

The Alliance’s 2020 membership cycle is open – join us today! The annual membership cycle runs from November through October, and memberships are accepted throughout the year.

Join the Alliance’s coalition of early childhood professionals and providers, parents, organizations, and businesses collaborating to support advocacy that improves the lives of Vermont’s young children.

The Alliance helps diverse stakeholders work together to amplify early childhood voices, influence policy making, and realize the promise of every Vermont child.

Members actively share information, data, and strategies – and the victories we can achieve together. By joining the Alliance, you will be saying “count me in” to partners from around the state.

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

As a member of the Alliance, you can attend the Early Childhood Day at the Legislature at a discounted rate and access an array of advocacy supports from the Alliance, including specialized advocacy trainings and updates from the State House.

The benefits of membership are many, but most of all, it brings us closer together. Members gather annually at the Membership Meeting, where we elect members to the Alliance’s Steering Committee, network, learn, and celebrate the strength and collaborative spirit of Vermont’s early childhood community.

The Alliance is a program of the Vermont Community Loan Fund which is a Section 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Therefore, your membership donation may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
