Capital Campaign

Thanks to a $150,000 matching grant from Otto Bremer Trust, all donations between now and September 1, 2022 will be matched.

Red Caboose needs a new home to help more kids. And we need your help! Our 40+ year-old center’s space is obsolete and too costly to fully repair. We can only serve 62 children at this locale. Our waiting list has grown to 100 children hoping to get the quality care and education they need to succeed as adults.

Contributions will be gratefully accepted in full, or may be pledged over a two to five year period.

Scholarship Fund

The Red Caboose Board of Directors has made a commitment to raise $50,000 each year to provide scholarships for every child on public tuition assistance. This will assure true access for all families regardless of income. Please join our effort to continue strengthening the Greater Madison community with a gift to support the Red Caboose Scholarship Fund. While tuition fees cover Red Caboose’s day-to-day operating costs, private donations help Red Caboose continue its tradition of helping those families who might not otherwise have access to top-quality child care.Your gift will contribute to the loving care and education of individual children, as well as the strength of our community as a whole.

COVID19 Fund

COVID19 has caused Red Caboose to modify our programming, and our dedicated staff is hard at work implementing the most up-to-date safety precautions while continuing to provide exceptional child care. Our administrative staff are all working hard to ensure the continuity of operations, while helping staff and families navigate these uncertain times. Families and supporters of Red Caboose can donate to our COVID19 relief fund directly here. The COVID19 fund will support maintaining staff salaries and benefits during this period of lower enrollment, as well as the costs of cleaning and consulting necessary to maintain the safest possible environment. Thank you to our many families who have already donated their tuition account balances, or more.
