A treasured Nashville tradition since 1916


Caroling for Kids has long been a vital part of our fundraising efforts. It is through our volunteer caroling groups, who raised over $32,000 in 2019, as well as individuals donors and corporate sponsors, that we are able to keep tuition rates low for working families. This even has been a treasured Nashville tradition since 1916 and we’re determined to keep the tradition rolling: 2020 has gone online.

There are 3 WAYS you can join in the fun and make a giant impact this holiday season:


Update on Door-to-Door Caroling: Due to COVID-19, we are have shifted the event to be entirely online. Sadly, singing is considered a super spreader of the virus and, therefore, we are asking groups to avoid door-to-door events and, instead, opt for creating an online fundraiser. We understand that many groups have a long-standing tradition of raising money for Fannie Battle through door-to-door caroling and we urge groups to adhere to Davidson County rules with regards to public gatherings even if your event is in another county. More info on the order and mandate, visit asafenashville.org.

In years’ past, individuals and groups wanting to make a difference in their community, raise over $32,000 for Caroling for Kids. These funds are crucial in allowing us to provide childcare tuition that working families can afford, caring and experienced early childhood educators, and excellent curriculum throughout the center. It is now, more than ever, that our services are needed in our neighborhood. Won’t you join in the excitement this holiday and help us reach of our goal of $30,000?  We’ve even created some awesome incentives to help get in the giving spirit. 

Registration is FREE and ends November 30th. Click the icon to get started. Caroling for Kids begins on December 1st and ends on December 24th.

What is the difference between an individual & a group?

An individual works independently – much like Facebook fundraisers. They would create their page, linked to Fannie Battle Day Home’s Caroling for Kids campaign, and away they go.

A group is comprised of more than one individual that want to fundraise together. A group leader will create the group page – complete with their group name – and each person part of that group will create their own page and link to the group. This option is great as it extends out to each individual’s network, it also allows for some competition (check out our Classroom Caroling Competition drop down to see how we are using the online fundraising tool to compete).

Do you have an example of what this looks like?

We’d like to present our FIRST (and hopefully many more) ANNUAL CLASSROOM CAROLING COMPETITION

Our teachers and children want to get in on this online caroling action and, with everything having the ability to connect online, we created the Classroom Caroling Competition. On Friday, December 18th from 8:45a – 10:30a all eight of our classrooms will be singing a holiday song of their choice via Fannie Battle’s Facebook page. Everyone will have their own fundraising page that can be shared with family, friends, co-workers – you name it – to help get the word out. We are asking the public to vote on creativity and enthusiasm and each vote is $5. While everyone is a winner here at Fannie Battle, the classroom that raises the most will receive a PIZZA PARTY.

Here is the schedule of classrooms:

  • 8:45A – Caterpillars
  • 9:00A – Sunbeams
  • 9:15A – Tadpoles
  • 9:30A – Butterflies
  • 9:45A – Bumblebees
  • 10:00A – Fernando Frogs
  • 10:15A – Fannie Frogs
  • 10:30A – School-Age

Consider a direct financial gift as a way to be part of Caroling for Kids this year.

Thank you 2020 Sponsors!
