Ways to Support CFRC

Research shows that investing in high-quality early childhood education for at-risk children is an effective strategy for reducing social costs. Participants in high-quality early childhood education programs have higher earnings, pay more taxes and are less likely to rely on government assistance.

The National Institute for Childhood Education Research estimates a 10% return for every dollar invested, making funding projects for early child education an opportunity that we can’t afford not to fund.

Increasingly, Children and Family Resource Center must rely on the financial support of corporations, foundations, and private donors to meet the needs of our community.

For thousands of children and families every year, the Children & Family Resource Center offers promise for the future and first steps ahead. Sponsoring, buying tickets, purchasing auction items, making a donation…these gifts allow us to bring hope to families.
