The Partnership for Children is a registered 501 3(c) non-profit organization. We were founded in 1997 and have been serving Johnston County ever since. The majority of our funding comes from SmartStart – a program funded by the state of North Carolina. In 2013, we raised an additional $25,803 through community donations, without including the fundraising for Partnership to Build a Miracle.
Our funding was reduced by 2.4% in 2013, after reductions in the previous year, and we are required to raise 14% in matching funds to receive it. We have been awarded a number of small grants from generous organizations like Target, Johnston County Community Foundation, Duke Energy and also in-kind donations from private donors and businesses.
