Help make a difference in the life of a child.


Your Support Matters


Each year thousands of young children reap the positive benefits from grants the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation makes to child care centers and providers. The grants allow child care centers to enhance the existing curriculum, institute new curriculum, afford child care teachers the opportunity to attend professional development classes and workshops, improve the physical plant by making the classrooms, playgrounds and other areas where the children will be safer. The grants also provide the opportunity for the centers to introduce the children to enrichment programs offered by local museums and cultural institutions.

Who's Benefiting

Young children benefiting from the Foundation’s efforts number in the hundreds of thousands. Teachers, parents, families, businesses and society also reap the rewards that are the result of high-quality early care and education advocacy efforts undertaken by the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation.


Direct giving

by the Foundation is approaching $3 million in grants and awards. Forty years of research tells us that the dollars that the TLLCCF has invested directly in early care and education programs will return as much as $45 million in benefits both to the children touched by the programs and to society. Donations may be tax deductible.

The TLLCCF is proud of the accomplishments it has made in Terri’s name. We are grateful to all of our supporters and volunteers who believe in our mission. We appreciate all of you more than words can express as you help the TLLCCF make high-quality child care a priority.
