lifeblood of every nonprofit
If you've got this far in the process, you probably
already know a little bit about the Council for Children. You probably
know that we are a community-centered organization, so the money
you give to us stays local. Our programs are run by volunteers
and most of our volunteers have been with us for over 5 years, many
have been with us for more than 10 years! You may also already
know that our Christmas is for
that began in 1983 helps over 1,000 children
each year, but did you know that the parents of those children come
to classes to reinforce budgeting, job search skills and parenting
skills? We want to help parents learn to help themselves because
we believe that if the parents can model good financial behavior,
the children will learn from their example.
We find simple solutions to what
can be complex issues and implement them without help from the state
or federal government. This is the definition of a "grass-roots"
But did you know that our operating
expenses are less than 10% of our gross income? That means
that we are very efficient with the money that is given to us, making
sure that as much as possible is available for programs and services
for the children in our area.
