Ways to Give

Ways to Give

The Children’s Center welcomes your gifts in many forms: cash, via check or online; stocks or other securities; in-kind donations of goods or services. We urge you to ask if your employer matches charitable gifts. And consider taking the simple steps to include the Children’s Center in your will or estate plan as part of your legacy.  

Your donation to Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center gives children who are at-risk of failing in school the chance to spend their early years in a high-quality preschool where they can build their essential skills to be ready for today’s kindergarten.

If you don’t see the convenient way you are looking for to donate to the Children’s Center, please call us at 703/534-4907.

Please take advantage of any of these means to give. We thank you!

Make Your Gift A Tribute to Someone Special. Any donation, made online or via mail, increases in meaning when you make it as a tribute to a friend or loved one.

Tell us that you’d like to make your gift In Honor of or In Memory of someone special in the Notes section of an online gift or enclose a message with your check. We’ll send a letter announcing your gift. Tribute Gifts can be made for any occasion: a birthday, anniversary, wedding, graduation, achievement.

Invest in Children – Transfer Securities  If you have investments in stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have increased in value, you can transfer any number of them to the Children’s Center as a gift that can offer you tax advantages. Explore the options here.

Designate Through Your Donor Advised Fund (DAF)  The investment pocket that is growing in popularity is the Donor Advised Fund.

Sponsor a Week of Breakfast & Snacks. Whether you shop and deliver the fresh food or write a check for $275 (or an amount you can afford toward the weekly budget item) and let us do the shopping, you’ll be the hero for providing our 80 children with 400 healthy breakfasts and 800 nourishing snacks. Choose a week to honor a birthday of a loved one and we’ll add the message to our posters.  Here’s how to become a sponsor.
