Why Give

All children should have access to an excellent education that will challenge and inspire them to reach their full potential, develop their confidence, and expose them to new possibilities and opportunities. Early Steps is proud to have helped 4,000+ children of color enroll in NYC independent schools, but not just for academics. Those students, their classmates, and the adults in the school community also learn from and about each other and how to live, work and thrive together. Diversity is beneficial for everyone.

Your support of Early Steps breaks barriers for children of color, creates inclusive school environments, and helps build strong communities.
