You can make a difference.
Growing Futures Early Education Center relies heavily on contributions from individuals and volunteer support. The federal government requires a community match for its grants to our programs. Federal funds have been flat for the last several years, while the cost of living continues to increase. To meet the needs of our existing families and to add others to the program who are currently waiting and in need of our services, we reach out to you. Your partnership and support are so very important. No contribution is too small or too large. We invite you to join us as we work to continue to bridge the gap in meeting the needs of an increasing number of poverty-level families in Johnson County. The charitable donation that you give today aids in our mission to empower children and families to success.
$50 can provide classroom supplies for one child for an entire school year.
$150 can provide transportation for one field trip per classroom.
$250 can provide diapers and wipes for one infant/toddler for one year of child care.
$500 can provide a nutritious lunch for one child for one year.
$1,000 can provide childcare for one infant for one month.

Other Donation Ideas
Wish list collections
Download our Wish List and sponsor a drive for much needed agency items, such as a food drive for breakfast and snack items, a book drive, a collection for classroom art supplies, toothpaste/toothbrushes, diapers and baby wipes, or paper goods.
If you are short on free time but would still like to be involved, consider helping out as an occasional food donor for evening family programs and meetings. Contribute a gift card from a pizza restaurant or grocery store, a meal item or healthy snack. Your support goes a long way in assisting us as we work to meet family and program needs at parent trainings and agency events. (We offer small group parent trainings at the end of a day so parents can come right after they finish work. Providing a light meal helps stretch their very limited food budget.)
