We are asking you to make a big difference in child abuse and neglect prevention with your small change donations. During the month of April, Supporting Families Together Association (SFTA) is partnering with our member Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) agencies and Family Resource Centers (FRCs) across Wisconsin to make positive early experiences a reality for ALL children. Trainings that promote the protective factors and prepare adults to prevent child abuse and neglect will be provided throughout April by SFTA and member staff. In 2017 we trained over 1,900 parents, early childhood professionals, and community members in child abuse and neglect prevention. Can we count on you to help us top this number and raise funds to sustain our work on behalf of Wisconsin children and families?
Here’s how it works:
We ask our supporters to contribute a chosen amount per each adult we aim to train in child abuse and neglect prevention during the month of April. For instance, if someone contributes a nickel per adult trained, and we trained 1,800 adults, theirs would be a total donation of $90.00. Every donor will receive a tax receipt, since all donations made to SFTA are 100% tax-deductible. Because SFTA strives to build systems and supports that prevent child abuse and neglect and promote quality early childhood experiences for all Wisconsin children, Teach-a-Thon funds will be used to:
- Provide technical assistance to community-based organizations committed to young children.
- Support focused advocacy efforts for young children and their families.
- Build a reserve so that children and families in Wisconsin can always count on SFTA.
- Fund innovative, local initiatives that have big impacts for young children.
Your small change will help to support innovation and sustainability in our work to promote quality early childhood experiences, and taking part in or hosting a training will help us to expand knowledge across Wisconsin about child abuse and neglect prevention.
Child abuse and neglect prevention trainings are open to the public and will occur throughout Wisconsin during the month of April. Call 1.888. 5437 to ask about child abuse and neglect prevention trainings in your area, or to donate your small change.
