Support A Child's Future
Children are the foundation of tomorrow and quality early learning is essential to their long term success!
We believe every child deserves a great education and research has shown that the earlier learning starts, the better the child's future. Science tells us that 90% of the neurons in the brain are developed by age 5. This is the primary reason why early learning has such a big impact on a child's future.
Quality early learning can be expensive and many low-income families are not able to give their children this crucial developmental stage. Single moms are the hardest hit and struggle to balance the demands of working, caring and providing for their loved ones. They dream and desire success for their children but simply do not have the resources to attain it.
Southwest Florida Child Care Scholarship Program
EVERY dollar we raise goes toward tuition for a child to attend a quality child care center. The families are selected based on need AND MUST BE WORKING OR ATTENDING SCHOOL to qualify for a scholarship. We believe in helping those who help themselves.
By donating to our scholarship program you will be helping build a young child's future. The return on your investment is enormous. The cost of not investing in our children is staggering. If a child does not receive high quality early childhood education they 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 to never attend college
- 70% more likely to be arrested for a violent crime
Your contribution is an investment in the future of a child in need.
- One day of child care $30
- One week of child care $150
- One month of child care $650
- One full year of child care $7,500
Education is the gift of a lifetime. Please help our children and families by donating to the Gift of Education scholarship program!
