SEEC - Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center


SEEC's Celebration of Early Learning

Join us for a night of great food and conversation, a celebration of SEEC teachers and a special guest speaker. Watch this space for more details and registration coming soon!


SEEC engages in a variety of other development activities aimed at strengthening the program through corporate, foundation, and individual giving. The funds help enrich the museum-based curriculum and program, increase staff salaries and benefits, build the scholarship endowment, and provide additional income for educational outreach and special projects.

Donate for Good

Annual Giving/Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)

Unrestricted funds from individual donors are raised primarily through the yearly Annual Giving campaign, which seeks support from our community of parents, alumni families, teachers and staff, grandparents, and other supporters, and the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Since 1989, SEEC has participated in CFC, which allows Smithsonian employees and workers from other Federal agencies to make contributions to SEEC through payroll deduction. To date, over $200,000 has been donated to SEEC from the Combined Federal Campaign.

SEEC's CFC # is 28194.

Please inform SEEC of your contribution to the Combined Federal Campaign by completing the gift/pledge form.
