Make a Donation. Invest in a child's future.
You can make a difference! Empower our future workforce!
At 4-C, we measure our impact by how successful we are in helping families with young children, especially low-income families, find quality child care and education.
By ensuring families have access to early child care and education, we help them stay in the workforce or continue their education. At 4-C, we believe that child care is critical to social well-being and economic development. 4-C advocates for an equitable and innovative education system while supporting early childhood professionals who work to meet the needs of families with young children.
Every act of generosity has the power to uplift a community. Study after study has shown that access to early care and education make a critical difference in the future success of children. That is why we need your support now more than ever. Your tax-deductible contribution helps to ensure children have access to early care and education regardless of economic status, making it possible for every child to flourish and reach their full potential!
Ways to support 4-C
Much of the investment in the early education goals of the thousands of families and child care providers we serve every year comes from generous gifts from individual donors.
We leverage every contribution to connect families to child care that meets their needs and financial assistance and to deliver quality programs that cannot be funded from our government grants.

4-C can receive 4% of the value of all your Kroger purchases when you choose us as your designated charity! So, for example, if you spend just $100 a month, 4-C will earn $48 at the end of the year. The best part: It doesn’t impact the rewards you earn or discounts you already get for using your Kroger card. It’s just an extra perk! To learn more about the program and how to select 4-C as your designated charity, visit the Kroger Community Rewards webpage. Once there, you can search for 4-C by our organization name Community Coordinated Child Care or our nonprofit number (DD581).
