Family Leadership Circle

Families Helping Families

Our Family Leadership Circle (FLC) is a group of dedicated donors who play a critical role in sustaining Cradles to Crayons’ mission through their annual support.

Add to Your Own Family Legacy, Join The FLC!

Our Giving Factory in Newton is one of the few places where entire families, including children as young as age five, can volunteer side-by-side to make lasting family memories as they help make a difference in the lives of others. The Family Leadership Circle provides a unique opportunity to instill the values of charity and community service in your children.

By making an annual financial contribution of $1,000 or more, you can join our FLC, a group of generous and dedicated families who play a critical role in sustaining Cradles to Crayons’ mission and our year-round work. FLC members also receive priority access to our family events throughout the year.

Empowering Children. Strengthening Families. Building Community.
