Simply put, a child’s early years lay the foundation for all that is to come. Researchers now understand that the human brain develops the vast majority of its neurons, and is at its most receptive to learning, between birth and three years of age. Early education plays a critical role during this developmental period. Decades of research show that giving at-risk children access to high-quality early education leads to better outcomes later in life, such as exponentially increasing the likelihood of graduating high school, going to college, earning better wages, and owning a home. Your donation helps create a path to a brighter future for local, underserved children.


Children who do not attend early learning programs are:
• 25% more likely to drop out of school
• 40% more likely to become a teen parent
• 50% more likely to be placed in special education
• 60% more likely never to attend college
• 70% more likely to be arrested for a violent crime

Your donation will go directly towards:

  • Partial scholarships for the children of low-income, working parents
  • Supplies and equipment for the children
