GRIT is celebrating its 40th anniversary!, and what better way to commemorate 40 years than to share 40 stories of impact.

We will be creating engaging video content to tell some of the impact stories GRIT has had over the years. But we can’t do it without your help!

Join our cause! 40th anniversary stories will pave the way for an amazing celebration of memories. We are looking for 100 donors to donate $100 each to help bring these stories to life. Thank you for your support in celebrating 40 years of GRIT!

As a trusted early child education program, we give families and community partners the resources, connections, skills and confidence they need to support every child’s learning and development.
