Your Giving Makes A Difference

Bryan Family Memorial

Friday, September 29, 2023 is a date our community will not forget. As information came forward regarding the multi-vehicle accident and deadly anhydrous plume, we all waited in sorrow to hear who had lost their lives. Our ECDC family was heartbroken to learn that Walker, Rose and their father Kenny Bryan had perished.

Walker and Rose began attending ECDC in 2016. Over the years, many friendships and memories have been made. With Walker and Rose attending school, we thought a School Bus Stop Memorial would be an impactful way to honor their lives and keep other school age children safe.

Please join ECDC in building a Neighborhood Bus Stop in memory of Walker, Rose and Kenny Bryan.

Ways To Give




You make a direct impact

For some children, childhood is difficult. Through your donations, we are able to provide relief for these children. For some kids, it can be as simple as providing a privacy fence so they feel safe while playing. For others, things can get a little complicated. Whatever problems the children face we are here to support them. Through your generous giving we make change happen for kids who need it most.

GROW Project Scholarships

Trauma can affect children’s brains, bodies, behavior, and ways of thinking. All children in foster care have been exposed to some form of trauma. The very act of being put in foster care is traumatic for children because it means the loss of their birth family and often friends, schoolmates, teachers, and everything that is familiar. It is our job to make this transition as painless as possible.

Retire The Mortgage

ECDC moved to our current location 25 years ago! Our current location is modern, safe, and perfectly suited for child care with over 7000 square feet of inside space and an awesome new playground! Moving to this property came with a mortgage, and while the payments are manageable, they consume considerable resources every month. ECDC is launching a fundraiser to Retire the mortgage so the funds can be utilized to directly benefit the children through Scholarships, the Lights on Afterschool and Summer Camp programs, initial days of care for children in foster care, enhancements to our curriculum, lesson plans and more! Please help ECDC Retire the Mortgage!
