As we celebrate the accomplishments of the last 20 years, our sights are set on the next 20 years. The Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF) is as committed as ever, and we are charging full speed ahead!
Move forward with us. Make a difference with us. CELEBRATE the challenge with us! Share our 2020 Vision of funding all seven strategic initiatives with a focus on the wellbeing of the whole child and support the continued success of our collective impact projects.
Your contribution will help nourish, heal and educate underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County, giving our most vulnerable young people the chance to grow into strong and resilient adults. While you’ll never know the details of the lives you transform or the cycles you break, you can be certain of this: a child’s first years last a lifetime.
Children’s experiences in their earliest years affect how their brains work, the way they respond to stress, and their ability to form trusting relationships. During these years the brain undergoes its most dramatic growth, setting the stage for social and emotional development. Language blossoms, basic motor abilities form, thinking becomes more complex, and children begin to understand their own feelings and those of others.
Emotional, cognitive, social and physical development are interrelated and influence each other, which is why all our initiatives—Early Learning, Healthcare, Hunger, Mental Health, Oral Health, Out-of-School Time, Vision—are so necessary to provide children with the opportunities that physical and mental health afford.
Each of NCEF’s collective impact models and initiatives provide the most fragile children with the tools they need to succeed academically and thrive. Help us continue NCEF’s blueprint for success and transforming our community. Please stand with us as we say, bring it on!
Here’s how your contribution can last a lifetime:
- $2,500 helps provide a mobile food pantry distribution to areas of the county considered “food deserts” for 1,100 children
- $2,500 puts 9 at-risk high school students on target for on-time graduation
- $1,000 provides mental health assessments for 8 children in need
- $1,000 provides 5 children with complete health screenings
- $500 helps provide literacy materials for an early childcare center
- $500 provides 7 children with dental sealants to prevent decay
- $100 provides 400 meals for families in need
- $100 provides 2 children two pair of eyeglasses, one pair for school and one for home
Every dollar raised will go to support NCEF’s seven strategic initiatives to focus on the wellbeing of the whole child.
Celebrate 20 Years of Cheers by giving generously and supporting the continued success of our collective impact projects as we embark on our next 20 years. Your participation will be one of the best investments you can make for the benefit of the children in our community. It’s all for the kids!
