As the child poverty rate continues to climb, NCCP’s unique role has never mattered more. No other group has our ability to identify the most relevant data, craft recommendations grounded in solid research, and communicate with the real decision makers at all levels of government.
If you would like to get involved, there are a few ways you can help.
Make a Contribution
Contributions of all sizes – large and small – allow NCCP not only to maintain the scope and excellence of our extraordinary research tools, but also to launch new endeavors to leverage our expertise. Your generosity can assist us in a variety of ways – from helping to fund the basic necessities of conducting ongoing, nationwide research, to underwriting full-scale projects to help combat poverty in America. We welcome inquiries from interested individuals, corporate donors, foundation officers, and others who wish to invest in children’s – and our nation’s – future.
Help Raise Awareness
One aspect of our work is helping to raise awareness – among policymakers, leaders, the media, and the general public – about the issues that impact poor and low-income children and families. Our supporters can help us in our efforts to raise awareness in several ways.
Act as a regional point person or liaison
You can get involved by distributing our publications to those who would find them helpful, or by organizing events – such as presentations, discussions, or fundraisers – in your city or at your workplace or academic institution. We also welcome the creativity and brainstorming of supporters interested in donating their time, so feel free to share your ideas with us. If we approve one of your ideas, we will be happy to provide whatever assistance we can – for example by answering your questions, linking you to relevant publications and research, or connecting you to key staff members.
Use your web connections
You can help to increase our web presence by linking to our website, citing our recommendations and research publications, posting an NCCP banner on your blog or web page, or becoming a fan of NCCP on Facebook.
