Get Involved

Perhaps you would like to join our effort to help children, parents and families. We do good work, and we could use your help! Here are some ways you could help.

  1. Spread the word about our Parenting Site. Perhaps you know a new or soon-to-be parent. A parent can never have too much quality information on how to raise a child.
  2. Invest in a part of this project that you feel strongly about. Perhaps there is a particular issue that you are concerned about: child abuse prevention; or encouragement of breast feeding; or teaching parents how to set limits and guide their children effectively; or developing early literacy and thinking skills. One family who received the Parenting the First Year series donated $10,000 to help us produce a new series for the prenatal months called Preparing to Parent. Other families and organizations have contributed money to help us expand distribution to more families.


Write or email us and we can discuss which part of the overall project can be "yours," and what we can accomplish with your help. Additional funding can make a real difference in both the development of new materials and in the number of families receiving the parenting newsletters. For you, this project may provide a way to invest in helping create the kind of future you believe in. (We can even provide assistance in maximizing the tax advantages of your giving.)
