Contribute to A Child’s Success

INVEST IN YOUR COMMUNITY’S FUTURE

Research has shown that for every $1 spent on programs like A Child’s Haven, $13 is returned to the public treasury. This is possible because of a reduced need for juvenile and adult programs, and an increased contribution of each person to his or her community.

Think about your own childhood. What difference would it have made if someone invested in making your life richer? A gift to A Child’s Haven not only demonstrates your belief in our mission, but also reinforces your commitment to making a difference in the world.

SUCCESS STORY

Donations Drive Development

Twenty-five associates from the executive offices of Island Global Yachting (IGY), located in Greenville, donated their time and resources to A Child’s Haven. Being the local contingent of the IGY Marinas global community outreach initiative, Inspire Giving Through You, they spent the entire day making improvements to our natural playground designed to inspire creative thinking through outdoor activity.

After their generous donation of $4500 in materials arrived on an 18-wheeler, the IGY Marinas team worked tirelessly installing sun sails that provide shade to our sandboxes and hammocks which offer needed sensory input for our children. Thanks to this donation, the children of A Child’s Haven can now enjoy explorative play while remaining protected from the sun. They can also spend imaginative time swinging in hammocks, helping to improve their perception and calm their bodies.

A Child’s Haven is immensely grateful for the dedication of the IGY Marinas associates, and their kind donation of time and resources to benefit our children.
