Support the Highlights Foundation

Children are the world’s most important people, and books and stories play a huge role in shaping their worldview. Therefore, everyone who brings story to kids plays a role in building our future. We take that responsibility seriously, and are honored to do this work with our community.

Help Where It’s Needed Most

Your gifts to help “Where It’s Needed Most” do a little bit of everything at the Highlights Foundation: support our scholarships, offset operating costs, pay for crucial infrastructure improvements, and more.  Donate now.

Community Projects

Some improvement projects happen when our community comes together and meets a need. For example, in 2023, we raised enough funds to install new rocking chairs across campus. It was special because countless ideas, connections, and stories are born in those rocking chairs every day–they support storytellers in their journey toward inspiring kids.

Building & Improvement Projects

When the Highlights Foundation undertakes a project to improve our campus facilities, donor support and grants play a critical role. An example was our shift to primary solar energy in 2019. We have ambitious intentions to make our organization and retreat center more functional, sustainable, and accessible for all. These plans and projects are undertaken thoughtfully, to ensure that the Highlights Foundation can persist now and in the future.

Planned Giving

We are honored when someone chooses to leave a legacy gift in support of the Highlights Foundation and our mission. If you’re interested in creating a named or endowed scholarship, or including the Highlights Foundation in your estate planning, we would love to meet at your convenience.  Learn more about planned giving.
