COVID-19 Resources: Messages from The Center and Resources for Families >

Capital Campaign

  • Where We’re Headed

    A pillar in our community for more than 75 years, The Childhood League
    Center is investing the next 75+ years.

    In a touching show of generosity, numerous individuals and companies lead the way into the future by believing in The Center, its mission and ability to make lifelong impact. Their investment was not only in the new building but also The Center’s bigger dream of doing more and helping more families.

    Without the leadership of these philanthropists, this beautiful building would not yet be making a difference and The Center would not yet be poised to challenge itself with the questions of how to make an even greater impact beyond these walls.

    It is with deep gratitude that The Childhood League Center thanks and honors those who made this dream possible and set The Center up to dream bigger and do even more.

    Thank you for your generosity and thank you for believing in us.

    The new building led The Childhood League Center to begin a strategic planning process in 2017 that resulted in the creation of a new vision and mission alongside an ambitious multi-year strategic plan.
