This summer, we asked our community to have a conversation about what’s important to them, and they answered: “Our Kids.”
On August 7, we turned in 63,499 signatures petitioning the Allegheny County Board of Elections to add the Allegheny County Children’s Fund to the November 6, 2018, General Election ballot. Our goal was to collect 40,000 signatures, but more than 63,000 neighbors, in all 130 municipalities and all 1,322 voting precincts in our county said YES! Now is the time to have this conversation about investing in kids and the future of our region!
The Allegheny County Children’s Fund would secure funding for our community to invest in three proven areas — early learning, after school and nutritious meals — to ensure a strong future for our region.
