Your donation can help to make a difference in the lives of young children and their families. There is compelling evidence that higher quality, early care and education is associated with greater costs. Findings on relationship between labor and quality suggest the importance of hiring enough staff to maintain small group sizes and ratios, and hiring staff with education and experience to provide high quality toddler and preschool care.
At Campbell Child & Family Center, a substantial portion of our parent body consists of Fort Lewis College students. Juggling the demands of school, work, and parenting can be a challenge. Although needy students may readily qualify for financial assistance to attend college, many low-income students are unable to afford quality child care.
Your contribution to Campbell Child & Family Center Programs Fund helps to keep our child care fees reasonable for all student families, while ensuring that early childhood quality standards are maintained. Your donation to the Fort Lewis College Child Care Scholarship Fund provides direct child care assistance to qualifying low-income student families. Making quality child care accessible to students offers a double benefit, helping parents to complete their college degrees while providing enriching early learning experiences for children.
The Fort Lewis College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. To the extent that no goods or services were provided, a contribution may be deductible according to IRS guidelines. Please consult your tax adviser for specific information.
