Washington is one of the least affordable states for child care. In King County, the cost of full-time infant care in a center averages $1,387 a month. For low-income parents, this expense is just too great. Dreams of a higher education and a brighter financial future diminish greatly when the reality of child care costs hit home.

You can make a difference.
Your investment changes lives, one family at a time, generation, after generation.


Seattle Milk Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. There are many ways you can invest in helping families create a brighter financial future.

Thank you for your contribution.
