"Early education is one of the major keys to equality in our society and better start for every child. Thank you for supporting families in need."
We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support SUM Child Development's work. By becoming a fundraiser for us you will help more at-risk children attend a quality early education program and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.
Getting started is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help, I know we can reach our campaign goal soon. We can ensure that our program will make a huge impact on the life of a child. The early years are crucial. When children enter kindergarten ready to learn, this positive trajectory continues throughout their lives: they have higher graduation rates, pursue higher education/career training and secure higher paying jobs.
The rewards of early childhood learning do not simply benefit the individual, however. There are positive repercussions for the entire community. Every dollar invested in early care and education generates a savings return of more than $16! The savings accrue from reduced costs for special education, public welfare, criminal justice, and additional social services. We firmly believe that we are all responsible for building the healthy foundations of the next generation.
