Amplify Austin 2019

Contribute to our scholarship fund and be the reason a student can attend Extend-A-Care’s Enchanted Summer Camp Experience. Last summer, EAC hosted over 1,000 youth at our various summer camps throughout the Greater Austin area, and over 63% of our youth received scholarship assistance to attend. Help a struggling single parent, a homeless child, or families in need of financial assistance have a high, quality option this upcoming summer! Donate to the EAC Amplify Austin Page (Feb. 28- March 1)!

Support Extend-A-Care's Mission!  Keep Quality Childcare Available to ALL Families in Our Community!

Extend-A-Care For Kids provides onsite, licensed after-school, summer, and preschool programming to 3,500 children on an annual basis.  Approximately 40% of our families enrolled in after-school care are low-income and cannot afford the cost of tuition.  To enable these working parents to support their families, Extend-A-Care discounts some or all of their monthly tuition fees.  To offer this vital support to our families while upholding a high level of quality, we must have true partnership with the community.  No contribution is too big or too small.  For more information on monetary contributions, or on donating in-kind goods (supplies, material, or equipment), please contact Jaime Garcia at 226-8254.

When I became a principal in Austin ISD many years ago, I was thrilled that Extend-A-Care services were available to my students.  Having been a working parent myself, I understood the value of excellent after-school and summer care programs.  I knew of Extend-A-Care’s outstanding reputation and was confident that my students in their care would be well taken care of.  I was never disappointed.  Joining the Board offered me the opportunity to work directly with the organization and more fully understand and appreciate its impact. The commitment of the staff to provide rich learning opportunities designed with local curriculum and enrichment needs in mind is truly inspiring to me.  I am proud to be a part of a program that offers affordable and meaningful after-school and summer care for so many children in Austin and surrounding communities.
