Raise Your Voices for Fannie Battle’s “Caroling for Kids”

Running, Dec. 1 - 24, this fundraiser helps the nonprofits mission to provide accessible, affordable, high-quality childcare.

Fannie Battle Day Home has served thousands of families in need of childcare in East Nashville since 1891. This holiday season, they hope to raise $60,000 through the 106th Annual Caroling for Kids fundraiser.

Running December 1 – 24, proceeds from the fundraiser enable Fannie Battle Day Home to continue the mission of its founder, Miss Fannie Battle, to provide accessible, affordable, high-quality childcare and empowering families to reach their full potential.

About Caroling for Kids

Caroling for Kids began in December of 1916 when Fannie Battle Day Home was nearly forced to close. Volunteers worked fervently with local musicians to raise money by performing in theaters, hotels, schools and door to door. They managed to raise more than $750 and kept the doors open.   

Now, Caroling for Kids is the Day Home’s longest-running event and a Nashville tradition. All ages can participate in caroling in East Nashville and surrounding zip codes. It’s a great opportunity to serve for girl scout troops, youth ministry groups or families.

Sign up for caroling today! Head to If caroling isn’t as doable for you this year, you can always make a contribution to Fannie Battle directly on the website.
