CommunityWorks Endowment Fund

early_childhoodThe United Way CommunityWorks Endowment Fund is a collaborative initiative between United Way and the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln to support programs aligned with United Way’s Lifelong Learning Initiative and local nonprofits with a focus on education, the environment or workforce development.

Disbursements from the fund are made annually, with Community Child Care Connection receiving subsequent awards to implement a program that is focused on ensuring all children in Sangamon County are ready for kindergarten.

To achieve this aspiration, CCCC will be working closely with partners including early childhood centers, school districts, families, and the Sangamon County Regional Office of Education. The program, employing a full-time coordinator, will screen three, four and five year old children with a universal tool and when necessary, connect children to appropriate resources.
