Fund-Raising Campaign

In its 12 years on the road in North America, the exhibition has visited 34 cities in 22 states and provinces in the United States and Canada. From March 1999 to October 2000, it will be housed at Mills College, where initiatives for professional development for educators will be organized by Reggio Children and the Innovative Teacher Project. Beginning in 2002, the exhibit will travel to Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio and then on to Florida.

Recognizing that it is time to update the U.S. exhibition, Reggio Children hopes to develop a new version based on the latest edition traveling in Europe. Added features would include various sections in which the role of the teacher is more evident.

To help make this hope a reality, Reggio Children has launched a major fund-raising campaign in collaboration with RISE, Inc. (Resources and Instruction for Staff Excellence), a non-profit organization dedicated to excellence in early childhood education. If you are interested in seeing the exhibition resume its tour of the U.S. and Canada, join other active friends of the project by supplying names of potential sponsors or by sending a donation to RISE at (800) 971-RISE (7473). Thank you for your valuable support.
