Our kids need a new building.

The community and education we provide is our mission — but we need your help to fulfill it.

Donate Now

Donating to our capital campaign directly helps kids in need.

We serve a broad array of families in Madison with loving care – 80% of our kids get scholarships or reduced tuition.

But our more than 45-year-old center is at the end of its useful life, and we’re out of space. Our waiting list has grown to 100 kids.

Help us build a new, larger home so we can help 50% more kids.

We need $3.7 million to build a new home at our new property on Winnebago Street.

So far we’ve raised $2 million, 57% of our project goal.

We need your help to cross the finish line.
