Early Childcare Endowment

An Early Childcare Endowment Fund has been set up at the Greater Salina Community Foundation. Through this endowment, the Salina Area United Way will be able to help the childcare centers in the community in the years to come. Currently, it will take approximately $460,000 per year to support the wage gap for an early childcare teacher. The endowment fund needs to be at $10 million to be able to pull $500,000 annually to continue to support the Early Childcare Initiative in the future.
