Have a Heart for Kids Day 2020

Voices for Children Online Fundraising Week


Anywhere with an internet connection  

We are so grateful to our supporters for their participation in our first-ever online Voices for Children Week 2020. Together, they help us amplify the power of the kids, families, and advocates who are fighting to advance racially-equitable policies for Washington children. 

Can you help us get closer to our fundraising goal? Every dollar helps, and we are grateful for any amount that you give to help us advocate for public policies that protect kids from the destructive forces of poverty and systemic racism.

With the state facing a $8.8 billion deficit, we need our lawmakers to protect programs that make a positive difference in the lives of Washington's families. Tell the state legislature to make a commitment to kids! Act now:
