The Friends Center for Children Annual Fund supports high-quality, early childhood education programs, competitive salaries for talented and dedicated educators, an environmentally-sensitive building that specifically serves the needs of very young children and financial aid for families who cannot afford the full cost of care. Your gift to the Annual Fund makes it possible for young children to establish a strong foundation for future life success. Requests for contributions to the Annual Fund are made [twice] annually in the spring and fall with reminders sent in the spring; the fiscal year concludes June 30. All levels of gifts are meaningful and deeply appreciated. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY! YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL TRANSFORM LIVES.
