Mission Statement

BANANAS mission is to partner with families and child care providers to raise happy, confident children. We do this by providing child care referrals, payment assistance programs (child care subsidies), workshops, playgroups, coaching, and support groups to our community of parents, caregivers, and child care providers. Throughout the pandemic BANANAS focused on directly supporting our child care providers and families through touch-free distributions in our office parking lot, which included diapers, wipes, summer reading and enrichment backpacks for kiddos, PPE items, cleaning supplies, and cash stipends.

Tax Savings

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.

If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.

Join Kamala Harris* and support BANANAS!

We have been a safety net for the East Bay community for almost 50 years. It is in our DNA to be innovative leaders continuously improving and expanding on our services. In recent years, we have developed programs to assist families experiencing homelessness, resource (foster care) families, and foster youth who are now parents themselves, pay for child care so they can work or educate themselves. More recently, we have developed two new Mom Support Groups - one for our BIPOC moms, and another for our moms experiencing homelessness so they have a safe place to discuss issues that are relevant to them. Our health and safety classes, which are mandatory for child care providers, are now offered in three languages - English, Spanish, and Chinese. These are just a few ways we work to ensure we are meeting our community where they are, with non-judgemental information and resources.

Will you support BANANAS as we support our parents, caregivers, and child care providers in raising the next generation?
