Creating equal opportunities for all children – regardless of race, gender and socioeconomic background – to learn and grow in their early years is vital to Lincoln’s prosperity. Far too many children arrive at school already behind. Access to quality early childhood development, including good nutrition, quality health care, reduction in adverse childhood experiences, and strong family structure, enables children to go to school, ready to learn and develop into successful community citizens.
The goal is to nurture every child on the path to success.
By the year 2020 Prosper Lincoln will:
1. Increase cross-sector initiatives to advocate for and improve early childhood development.
2. Increase community awareness about what quality early childhood development is and looks like.
3. Increase resources to enrich early child development at home, in care settings and in the community.
Give directly to your favorite early childhood program or make a gift to the Prosper Lincoln Early Childhood Fund to provide opportunities like: early childhood education scholarships, tickets to arts and cultural events and access to nutritious meals, wellness checks and healthy activities.
100% of all donations will be granted to early childhood programs in Lincoln with recommendation from the Prosper Lincoln Early Childhood oversight team.Donate Now
