Ways of Giving

Thank you for helping to make quality child care a reality for all children in our city! There are many easy ways to support our work.

Individual Gifts

Much of the investment in the early education goals of the thousands of families and child care providers we serve every year comes from generous gifts from individual donors. We leverage every contribution to connect families to child care that meets their needs and financial assistance, and to deliver quality programs that cannot be funded from our government grants.
