We're on a mission to ensure that every child has the quality care, resources, and support they need to thrive. Join us. Your contribution will make a direct impact on children, families, and communities right here in South Carolina.

GivingTuesday is November 30. On this international day of generosity, you can make a difference for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers right where you live. Your contribution to a local First Steps partnership helps ensure that every child has the resources and support they need for a strong start in life. A brighter future for them means a brighter future for us all. Give directly to your local First Steps partnership here.

Other ways to give throughout the year:

Support programs that matter to you. Designate your gift to literacy or parenting programs, and 100% of your donation will go towards the cause you care most about.

Give locally. Make an impact in your community by designating your donation to the First Steps partnership in your county.
