| LEADING THE WAY |

Children’s Workshop Foundation was established in 2011 to serve the needs of families. As a 501(c)3 public charity, our mission is to spark confidence, joy and the love of learning in each child. All of our proceeds go toward bettering the lives of children, improving communities, and furthering early childhood education.

STRONG LEADERS

Strong leaders set out to make a difference. They measure success by the impact they make in other people's lives. Our Executive Director, Board of Directors, and every employee at The Children's Workshop have a common goal: to improve the lives of children and under served families in our communities by helping them access needed resources and quality education. We accomplish this by supporting other organizations whose goals align with ours and through mentoring and community outreach.
