Who We Are and What We Need From You
Did you know there are over 1-million incorporated not-for-profit agencies in the United States? Some days, it can seem that each of them have sent you something in the mail, asking for your support. Just like every other agency, we are asking for your support and hoping for something in return—your money, your attention, your time. With so many choices available to you, why should you donate to Children’s Center?
Founded in 1989, we have an annual operating budget of over 1-million dollars. We have built a Board-directed reserve of a little over 1-million dollars for future stability. This may make it seem that we do not need your donation, but nothing could be further from the truth. Any donation, no matter how big or small, goes directly to help support our programs.
Like every agency, we have overhead and administrative expenses. However, we try to keep them as low as possible. You can rest assured that we spend most of our money on actual programs that serve our community.
Our Board formally adopted a set of policies that set out to enhance your relationship with Children’s Center. Included in these policies is a Donors Bill of Rights which outlines exactly what you can expect from us. Click here for a copy of these policies.
Community Engagement is the process of building relationships with community members who will work side-by-side as an ongoing partner with Children’s Center. Together, in every way imaginable, we will build support for our mission with the end goal of making Clark County a better place to live.
While we stay true to our core values, we continue to look for new, innovative ways to serve the children and families of Clark County.
