of Washtenaw County

Today in Washtenaw County, thousands of children are at risk because their families can’t afford quality early education, proper nourishment, and other basic needs.

Due to certain risk factors, these children may not be adequately prepared for kindergarten. Consequently, they may experience difficulty throughout their lives; in school, employment status, and relationships. Foundations Preschool is committed to supporting children and families by providing tools to increase their chances for future success.  Our myriad of support services for children and families are made available thanks to our generous donors.

Endowment Fund

There are three pieces to the financial stability puzzle:

Proper management of day-to-day financial operations

Year after year, Foundations Preschool sets realistic budgetary goals and the audited financial operations yield positive results.

Endowment Fund

The time has come to complete the financial stability puzzle.  An endowment fund will allow us to endure a stable source of funding for the future of our organization.

Healthy financial reserves

Foundations Preschool has surpassed the recommended reserve of a 3-6 month financial cushion.  This is short-term protection in the event of an emergency.
