The work of PACCC benefits greatly from the financial support of numerous local individuals and organizations. PACCC is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations to the agency are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

There is a vast need for safe, affordable, high quality child care for all families living in the Mid-Peninsula region, including our neighbors with low incomes. In an effort to address this need, PACCC operates the Family Partnership Program, which leverages funding from the City of Palo Alto, the State of California (in partnership with the Palo Alto Unified School District) and its own fundraising efforts to provide high quality early childhood programs for qualifying families.

The Family Partnership Program supports families like Karla's:

“I am thankful for this program that allows my daughters to be cared for by wonderful people while I work.  I do not worry when at work or at school and that helps me continue to improve my life, as well as theirs.  Without this service I don’t know how I could pay my bills or get my degree in accounting.  I am grateful.”

Donations may be made either to support the Family Partnership Program, or to benefit a particular PACCC child care center. Tax-deductible gifts may be in the form of a check made payable to PACCC, or by using PayPal to donate by credit card or online bank account.

PACCC is a charitable organization pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

PACCC's Tax Identification Number is 94-224-2823

Planned Giving
