Make a Difference
Help make a difference for kids like me.
In the lives of children, the lives of families, and the community, Brazoria County Alliance for Children is a vital force. Every day, we push the boundaries of injustice, helping children and families start healing and try to make the world a better place for our youngest citizens.
We owe our success to the generous contributions from our donors. Your gift could help provide the support and encouragement children affected by abuse and neglect need to move from being a victim to becoming a healthy survivor. Your gift of time or financial contributions can help them face the overwhelming physical and emotional challenges that are prevalent in the healing process; giving them the hope and courage to believe that the world really can be a beautiful place, that being a child can be a positive experience, and letting them know that there are people who care.
Charitable giving is a highly personal activity. Choosing a cause to support expresses your deepest values and reflects your vision of the world and of yourself.
When you make a gift to the Brazoria County Alliance for Children, you have different ways to express those values. You may give an unrestricted gift to be used where the need is greatest, or you may choose to support a specific program or project that you feel strongly about.
You might sponsor a child or one of our special events, endow a staff position, fund the purchase of new equipment or sponsor a room at our offices. But wherever you direct your gift, you’ll be helping us make a tremendous difference in the lives of children in our community.
