Help jump-start a child's education
Give to support a child's future.

Due to local and state budget cuts, children of low-income families are at risk of losing early childhood education programs that develop skills to promote kindergarten and elementary school readiness.

 

We believe that all children, regardless of their zip codes, deserve a high-quality education. Local and state dollars are often not available in the summer months to help bridge this funding gap. This puts children and families at risk of losing continuous early childhood education. Our goal is to support all children in developing skills that promote kindergarten and elementary school readiness and a love of lifelong learning.

 

Your gift can support a child’s education from a low-income family in central Ohio. Your generosity can:

  • Feed one child a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack each school day during the summer months.
  • Support a full week of summer school attendance for an at-risk child. 
  • Provide a full year’s worth of art supplies for one child to develop motor skills and learn visually.
  • Donate three books to our JPMorgan Chase Library available to A. Sophie Rogers School and Weinland Park families to take home and read together.

These are just a few examples of the way your gifts can help children develop essential social skills that will strengthen a lifelong love of learning, discovery and education.

 

Give to support a child’s future.
