One-third of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County’s children under age 5 is threatened by the constant stress and pressures of living in poverty – which lead to emotional, behavioral, health, and learning problems. Too many of our youngest children are stranded on the far side of opportunities that could help them thrive.

Because of your generous donations, every dollar of the $75,000 Matching Challenge Gift has been matched.Donate_Now

An anonymous donor came forward to challenge each of us to make a huge difference in the lives of vulnerable children and families.

You more than met the challenge. You raised $84,776.78! That’s $159,776.78 to support programs and services that provide more opportunities which place young children and their families on a path toward reaching their full potential.
