"Ellis is so special to our family because it is a place where we can be part of a community that reflects the diversity of our city and  where every child receives the same excellent education and nurturing care, regardless of their family's resources." Kristen Vicino, Board of Directors and parent of two Ellis alumni. 

Why donate to Ellis Early Learning?
Ellis has an annual operating budget of $8 million with a gap of $1.4 million, and your generousity support enables Ellis to continue its legacy of service of over 135 years. 

Your gift makes a difference.
Two-thirds of Ellis families receive government subsidies to afford childcare, but the government reimbursement rate doesn't come close to covering the cost of their care at Ellis. 
Your gift will provide much-needed support to our programs, including:
 $250 replace worn and well-loved games and toys
$500 cover the cost of diapers frot here months for a classroom of infants/toddlers
$1,000 cover the cost of two weeks worth of school supplies for a classroom

$5,000 covers one year of nutritious meals for two children
$10,000 covers the cost of formula for a year for a classroom of seven infants

Consider maximizing your donation with a corporate matching gift.
Many companies will match contributions made by an employee (or by an employee's spouse) to a nonprofit organization. This can represent a significant increase in gifting. Please check with your employer to determine if they have a matching gift program.
