Thanks to those of you who have given so generously to help keep CDC's doors open for families and children! Special thanks to the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, State of Michigan, and Buhr Foundation for their grant support to help kids.

Because of people who give, children and families received over $143K in support for childcare last year People from across the community and the country have given over $180K in the last several months to help save CDC! Our vision is to help ALL kids and families who need it and it is possible only with your help.

  • “My daughter went to CDC from age 2 1/2 - 5, and she (we) loved every moment of it! Such a positive, fun atmosphere with wonderful teachers and leadership. She still participated in CDC Kids club after school and CDC camp in the summers. I'll be sad when she is an alumni!.“
