United Way of Larimer County's Child Care Initiatives

LCCF - ThriveByFive_Thank You
Child care is more than just a service—it's where children's education intersects with family financial stability. In Larimer County, child care costs can consume over 30% of a family's income, posing a significant burden for many households. Yet, quality child care is crucial for children's development, boosting early reading, graduation rates, and life skills.

Our Impact

At United Way of Larimer County, we're dedicated to bridging the gap. Through our Child Care Initiatives, we provide vital support to families and child care providers, ensuring that every child has access to quality care regardless of their family's financial situation.
  • Child Care Scholarships: Your donation directly funds child care scholarships for low- and middle-income families, easing their financial burden and enabling parents to work and pursue education.
  • Capital Projects: We invest in vital capital projects, such as the Loveland Youth Campus, expanding child care spaces and creating transformative hubs where families can access essential services.
  • Grants for Providers: We provide grants to nonprofit child care providers, enabling them to maintain high-quality standards and create enriching environments for children to learn and grow.

  • Your Impact, Your Benefit
    By donating to United Way of Larimer County's Child Care Initiatives, you're not only transforming lives but also benefiting from significant tax savings. Colorado taxpayers who donate $250 or more can claim a 50% income tax credit through the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (CCCTC).
