Yes, I want to support the future of Forsyth County kids!

We know what it takes to put young children on a path to lifelong success: high-quality child care and education, programs that support physical and developmental health and help build family literacy, parenting and other skills—all delivered through a strong, diverse integrated early childhood system.

We know that investing in the early years provides a tremendous return on investment: for every $1 spent today, we save $13 dollars in future spending. And we have many children and families who qualify for these essential programs. (Of the 18,058 children birth to age 5 who live in Forsyth County, 16.7% live in poverty.) Unfortunately, funding for our programs does not meet the demand.


Learn what actions you can fill in the gap and support adequate funding for proven early childhood programs by engaging with us. Supporters like you make a difference here! Your gift, monetary and inkind, bonds Forsyth County children and families by:

  • Keeping children in safe, clean, and healthy facilities
  • Affording childcare scholarships for those who cannot afford it
  • Providing educational materials and IT equipment for teachers
  • Making nutrition an accessible priority
  • Empowering Forsyth County’s next generation
