For too long the District’s most vulnerable children have waited to be a priority for all of us in this city. DC’s children can’t wait any longer. 

For 25 years Children’s Law Center has served as an anchor institution for the District’s children and families. To bolster our financial security and ensure we are here to support DC’s kids for years to come, several visionary donors stepped up and collectively invested over $2 million in the Children Can’t Wait Fund. Looking ahead, we know the Children Can’t Wait Fund will be integral to helping us navigate an increasingly volatile funding environment while building a brighter future where all of DC’s children can thrive.
