Foundations, federal grants, state grants, state contracts, individual donors, group donors, and corporate donors and sponsors play an important role in the elimination of child abuse and neglect in New Hampshire. We are grateful for our numerous supporters and we invite you to join them.
Business and Corporations
Small and large New Hampshire businesses have invested in strengthening our families and our community by sponsoring events and making charitable contributions to the New Hampshire Children’s Trust. “New Hampshire is a great place to raise a family and the New Hampshire Children’s Trust is working to keep it that way. That’s why we make an annual contribution to their cause,” NH business owner. See our annual report for more information on business contributions. Price Chopper Grocery stores, and many NH small businesses, sell pinwheel pinups at the cash register every April to raise money and awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month. If you would like more information about selling Pinwheel Pinups contact Keryn Bernard-Kriegl, Executive Director.
Individual and Family donors
Our supporters are so appreciated, knowing the enormous cost of child abuse and neglect on our state. In 2013, New Hampshire Children’s Trust had more individual online donations than any other year!
“It’s time that we made the kind of investment in our children that will result in a significant decrease in the number of child abuse and neglect victims in New Hampshire.” Peirce Hunter, MD, Former Board Chair
Civic, Fraternal, Faith Groups and Clubs
Groups of community and student leaders see the wisdom in supporting efforts to eliminate child abuse and neglect in New Hampshire. Our staff travel around the state every month, speaking about what communities can do individually and together to support families and help children reach their full potential. Groups such as the Kappa Delta Sororities at UNH and Dartmouth College hold fundraising events to raise awareness and funds to eliminate child abuse and neglect. The General Federation of Women Clubs organized both a listening session for the National Movement for America’s Children and club knitters for the CLICK for Babies Campaign.
Health Care and Other Organizations
Child abuse and neglect is now recognized as a Public Health Crisis. According to a new national survey by The University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, child abuse and neglect is among the top 10 children's health issues. Local physical, oral, mental and behavioral health providers and centers are doing their part to invest in evidence based strategies giving every child the opportunity for healthy growth and development.
Foundations and the United Way
Small and large foundations and the United Way have invested in strengthening our families and our community by funding our work and by providing opportunities to build relationships and improve our work.
