Invest in LUME

LUME Institute has the opportunity to impact thousands of children through the professional development courses and programs we offer to early educators and the services we offer to early childhood centers looking to start-up or re-engineer their programs.

By supporting LUME Institute with a tax-deductible donation, you are supporting a progressive change in early childhood education and care, impacting not only the children of today, but also the adults they will become tomorrow. Learn more about LUME's outcomes and impact here

Please click the Invest button to be taken to our secure and easy donation page operated by PayPal. 


As LUME is in its own start-up phase, it is currently a program operated under University City Children’s Center and as such all donations and support are given to UCCC and restricted to use for LUME Institute.
