Monetary Donations

Your donation will assist us in serving thousands of parents and early care and education professionals each year.

In-Kind Donations

4-C happily accepts select new and gently used items for use with 4-C programs. 4-C programs have varying requirements with regard to what can be accepted. Generally we do not accept used stuffed animals and are interested in items that are developmentally appropriate for children.

While we appreciate the generosity of all those interested in supporting 4-C through a donation, 4-C guidelines have been developed with the best interest of children, early childhood providers, and 4-C staff in mind.

Interested in Making a Donation?

Please contact 4-C at [email protected] if you are interested in donating. Please include a clear description of what you are interesting in donating, including whether it is new or used. We will respond to you after we’ve determined if we can use the items you’d like to donate. Donations are accepted only after they have been approved.
