BENEFITING: LAKE SUPERIOR COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP FOUNDATION
The Marquette-Alger Great Start Collaborative has been awarded an Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC) grant up to $100,000 in ARRA funds. This grant will support one year of child care/preschool scholarships for eligible three-year-olds to access a high quality learning experience in Marquette and Alger Counties starting September 1, 2011.
The Challenge: our community must provide a dollar for dollar cash match for the funds by July 31, 2011! This match can be used to help fund and local community needs outlined in our GSC Strategic Plan/Action Agenda related to: Pediatric and Family Health; Social and Emotional Health; Parenting Leadership; Child Care and Early Education; and Family Support.
We are asking for your support with this cash match. Your tax deductable cash donation, which will be matched by ECIC, will go a long way in providing a promising future for many of our community’s youngest and neediest children.
