Some of the successes your Dollar per Child contribution enabled in recent years:
Our goal is to raise one dollar for each of the one million children in Head Start and Early Head Start programs across the nation.
The campaign soft launched on July 1, 2016 with a public launch in October in honor of Head Start Awareness Month. What better way to celebrate than to help support our efforts to raise awareness through advocacy for the year to come!
This year we’ve improved our on-line giving ability to ensure that each and every on-line donation will be credited to a local program, state and region. Programs can fundraise through on-line donations and/or community events. There will be a turn-key activity for parents and programs highlighted each month and the program that raises the most per capita per child will be honored as our monthly winner! To learn more about how to fundraise for DPC and find turn-key activities to help you in your efforts participate in our webinar on October, 6th at 3pm. Register here.
At the opening session of the 2017 NHSA Annual Conference in Chicago, we will recognize the states, programs, regions and corporate sponsors who have chosen to demonstrate their commitment to Dollar per Child once again by presenting a check before thousands of their colleagues to the 2016-2017 campaign! We will also announce the top contributing program, region and state to date!
