Thank you for your interest in supporting NASA Goddard Child Development Center (GCDC). NASA GCDC, like all independent schools, depends upon the generosity of our community to sustain and advance the mission of the school. There are many ways to take an active role in fostering the school’s mission of creating an early childhood program where children have opportunities to grow and excel in all areas, particularly math, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In addition to volunteering in our program and selecting us as your Combined Federal Campaign charity, interested persons can take an active role in our program through donations. Your donations plays a pivotal role in ensuring that NASA GCDC develops STEM literate children that will advance much of the NASA's work in the future and ensure the best possible educational environment for both students and faculty.
GCDC graciously accepts monetary donations. Funds will be used to directly support our program.
Tax Exempt Status
GCDC is operated and controlled by the Goddard Employee Welfare Association (GEWA), a Non-Appropriated Fund Instrumentality of NASA. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has determined that NASA's exchange program (including GEWA) is a wholly-owned instrumentality of NASA (i.e. the Federal Government). Therefore GCDC enjoys Federal tax-exempt status. Donations to our program are tax deductible.
A receipt will be provided for all monetary donations.
How to Donate
NASA GCDC accepts donations via check through the link below. If donating by check, be certain to write "Donation" on the "for" line of your check. A receipt will be mailed to the address on the check.
