Together we are making history!

You stepped up. You raised your voice. You made a commitment to our kids.
You didn't just whisper, you roared. Which is why on Tuesday we turned in 63,499 signatures petitioning the Allegheny County Board of Elections to add the Allegheny County Children's Fund to the Nov. 8, 2018 General Election ballot.
You read that correctly. Our goal was to collect 40,000 signatures, but nearly 64,000 of our community members took the question seriously and were open to having this dialogue about early learning, after school, nutrition and our future.
We are incredibly grateful for your commitment to our kids.
The 63,499 signatures came not only from all 130 municipalities but from each and every one of the 1,322 voting precincts in Allegheny County. More than 200 people collected signatures from friends, family and neighbors, and notaries helped us get the petitions finalized to submit.
Thank you to all of you who signed, spread the word, circulated petitions and showed your support! This is just the beginning, but we are one step closer to creating an even brighter future for all kids in Allegheny County.
Until we receive the official word from the Election Board that the question is on the November ballot (and you can believe we'll let you know as soon as we do), please continue to spread the word about having this conversation about our kids and investing in our region.
