FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

United 4 Children Launches ‘Change 4 Children’ 

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI (April 8, 2021) – Today, United 4 Children launches Change 4 Children – a new monthly recurring giving opportunity. This new fundraising model allows supporters to donate a set amount on a monthly basis – turning their loose change into change in the lives of children. By making a monthly gift, donors will be able to stay connected to how their support is making a specific impact. 

United 4 Children, a nonprofit that provides comprehensive services to childcare and after school programs, gives caregivers the knowledge and skills necessary to ensure that the children in their care feel safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.  

Childcare advocates wishing to support this work are welcome to join Change 4 Children at different levels of giving. Supporters will receive a small gift in exchange for their monthly support: 

  • Supporters giving $10 a month will receive a grocery tote. With $10, United 4 Children can provide a childcare center a book that helps children understand and communicate their emotions.   
  • Supporters giving $25 a month will receive a water bottle and help United 4 Children provide a childcare center with a sensory item to help children with special needs meet development milestones.   
  • Supporters giving $50 a month will receive an umbrella. With $50, United 4 Children can purchase technology to help observe childcare classrooms virtually with a device that senses children’s motions and follows them around the room.   
  • Supporters giving $100 a month will receive a United 4 Children quarter zip sweatshirt and help United 4 Children support a childcare provider in purchasing study materials for the Child Development Associate program. 

Anyone wishing to join Change 4 Children as a founding member should visit United4Children.org and select “Get Involved” on the homepage.
