financial Accountability

our impact

The Partnership for Children is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We were founded in 1997 and have been serving Johnston County residents ever since. As a Smart Start and NC Pre-K organization, the majority of our funding comes from the NC General Assembly. The Smart Start network is recognized as one of the most efficient and responsible non-profits funded by North Carolina. As a result of our commitment to financial accountability, our finance team has guided us to clean audits since our very beginning.

We take pride in being a part of the following Partnerships’ financial accountability: Harnett, Wayne, Lenoir-Green, Beaufort-Hyde, Dare, Robeson, Columbus, Yadkin and Surry County.
