Here's how you can support Children's Institute

Corporate Sponsorships
Align your brand with CII's mission by becoming a sponsor -- from purchasing a table at our awards gala to adopting one of our 32 early childhood centers -- we have the right opportunity for your company.
Planned Giving
Interested in joining the CII Legacy Society and supporting high-needs children and families over the long-term? You can help by transferring assets of real estate, stock or life insurance during your lifetime or by designating CII in your will.
Volunteer Opportunities
From reading to preschoolers to helping with art projects and homework, we’re always looking for volunteers to assist with our programs and make a positive impact on children.
Building on Success
CII is building a new 20,000 square foot campus designed pro-bono by renowned architect Frank Gehry in Watts, one of the most challenged neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Support the effort from the ground up.

In-Kind Donations
CII has distributed thousands of items to families in need across Los Angeles County thanks to generous in-kind donations. We gladly accept donations of NEW items for infants, children and adults, including clothing, baby items, hygiene products and art and school supplies.

Donor Advised Funds
If you have a Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund, or a Fund in your name at a Community Foundation, find out how you can make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and families in Los Angeles.
