Wish List (In-Kind Items & Supply Donations)

Your donations of materials and supplies throughout the year are appreciated, they free up operational funds to support our services. With the exception of children’s books and some craft supplies, materials should be new/unopened.


Please drop off or ship in-kind item & supply donations to our administrative offices inside Ivy Tech:

Early Childhood Alliance
3800 N Anthony Blvd
Fort Wayne, IN 46805


If you have questions about a donation please contact our Development team or by phone at 260-458-0125

We're taking the guesswork out of in-kind/supply donations

On our wish list below you’ll find an ever increasing number of items that are clickable and take you right to the appropriate item on Amazon. When you order using these paid links you’ll not only support us with materials from our wish list, but Early Childhood Alliance will get a referral bonus.


Want to make it even easier, if you’re ordering from Amazon or another online retailer why not have your donations shipped right to our door. Just ship them to the address listed below.


And just like that, you have supported Early Childhood Alliance financially and with materials in one step without even leaving your house.
