Support the Annual Giving Campaign

The Annual Giving Campaign launches each August to raise much-needed funds that bridge the gap between public funding and the resources needed to provide the programs our children have come to know and love. We target 100% family participation. Each family's situation is unique, so please know that no contribution is too small.

To make a gift today, click here. For more information on our Annual Giving Campaign, please contact Elizabeth Van Clief.
