Matching Fund Contributors

The School Readiness Program is funded through the federal Child Care Development Block Grant and state general revenue. This grant requires a 6% local match from the Coalition.
The local Children’s Services Council and the United Way of St. Lucie County sponsor the majority of the Coalition’s required local match funding. Coalition programs are presented in partnership with the Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County and the Coalition is a United Way of St. Lucie County member agency.
The remaining portion of the Coalition's local match was obtained from organizations, local businesses and area residents. The Coalition appreciates the following donors for their generous donations:
