Support Fund 288

There are 288 children, 0-3 years old, whose families are searching for child care. But with the monthly cost of care averaging more than $1,100, and a full-time minimum wage salary in Marin equaling less than $1,400 per month, the parents simply can't afford it.

Quality child care is of immense importance to families. For the children, it provides a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment during the most critical developmental period in their lives. For parents, child care allows the opportunity for school, work and stability.

It may just be one of the most important investments that a community can make. That's why the Marin Child Care Council has created Fund 288. All funds raised will help increase the supply of affordable child care spots in facilities across Marin.

Everyone in the community is invited to participate in the Council's new fund. And the Marin Community Foundation will match every dollar contributed, up to $100,000.

This is an issue our community can solve. Now. Together, let's give our county's children the best possible start to their lives.

Donate today at www.stage.fund288.org or by calling 415.472.1092
