A monthly pledge is a convenient and cost-effective way to join others like you who share your commitment to protecting America’s children.
Why consider a monthly gift?
- Convenience: A monthly pledge is an extremely convenient way for you to make a lasting impact on America’s children every month and not have to worry about it.
- Cost: By pledging just a few dollars a month, you can make a long-lasting impact. A gift of $50 or $100 may feel too expensive, but a gift of $5 or $10 a month may be more affordable.
- Community: Through your monthly gift, you join a community of others like you who choose to act on their belief that America can and must do better for our children.
