Support LGSC

Help us provide preschool programs, activities and information directly to Lenawee County children and their families. Visit the Lenawee County Education Foundation's page and choose "Great Start Collaborative" as your designated program. Thank you!CTF license plate

You can also support us by choosing a Children's Trust Fund license plate! Next time you renew your plates at the Secretary of State office, consider purchasing one for $35 ($25 of the fee goes to the Children's Trust Fund, and the Lenawee Great Start sponsor ECIC receives a portion of those funds).

You can also donate to the Children's Trust Fund on your Michigan State Tax Form 4642. Your donation is tax-deductible in the next tax year.
