Give the Gift of a Brighter Future – ECE Donation Dedications Due by 12/20

December 20, 2023

The holidays are a time to spread joy and give back to help others’ wishes come true. During this season of giving, please consider honoring your family and friends with the Gift of a Brighter Future by making a contribution to the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Fund at Community Foundation of North Louisiana.

High quality early learning fosters healthy brain development during the critical first years of life and equips children for success in school and in life. However, for many families in our community, the average cost of $8,500 per year for quality childcare is simply unaffordable. Every gift made to the ECE Fund is matched by the State of Louisiana to provide scholarships for children ages 0-3 from low income households to attend a high quality preschool.

How Does It Work? With a minimum donation of $20 per card, CFNLA will mail a hand addressed Merry and Bright holiday card to notify the loved ones on your list of the gift made in their honor. You can donate online using the button below or mail a check to 401 Edwards St., Suite 105, Shreveport, LA 71101. Please include a list of the recipient’s names and mailing addresses with your check or email them to info@cfnla.org. Donations and recipient list should be received by Dec. 20 to ensure timely delivery of the card.

Help us build a brighter future for our community by giving all children a strong educational start.
