Supporting a strong start for a bright future.

Thank you for choosing to support our early childhood community. By giving a gift to the Collaboration for Early Childhood, you have helped to ensure that each and every one of our children enter kindergarten ready to learn.

Consider setting up a monthly donation! 

The Collaboration believes in the the work that happens in our early childhood programs. We need your support to ensure that these magical environments are protected learning spaces for all of our children. Your donation will help us:

  • Support the capacity of our community systems and partners to successfully transition children into kindergarten.
  • Create strategic learning opportunities for providers that can be utilized in the classroom the very next day.
  • Build sustainable systems of support to help programs retain and nurture children in classrooms despite the multitude of stressors and challenges that families may be facing.

If you would like to support the Collaboration through a donor advised fund, or corporate matching through your company, please reach out to Lisa at or call her at 708-613-6122. If you are a business owner, we would be honored to speak with you about sponsorship opportunities and additional ways we can partner with you to strengthen our community together.
