Fostering Leadership

Elmcrest is eager to partner with organizations that share our commitment to helping the community's most vulnerable children. The businesses and other institutions that step forward as Fostering Leadership partners keep Elmcrest strong for the 2,500 children and family members we serve each year. Our partners enable Elmcrest to help children build a path to a brighter future. And when their future brightens, it's a brighter day for our whole community.

With a $10,000 commitment, Fostering Leadership partners receive prominent recognition at Elmcrest events, on our website and in our annual report, newsletters and other printed material. Fostering Leadership partners may also participate in our youth employment readiness program, enabling youth in care at Elmcrest to learn, grow and thrive while gaining valuable real-world work experience.
