"Setting the path for your child to succeed"


We Need Your Support

The Red Balloon relies on a combination of tuition, grants, and generous donations from its supporters to fund the center.

For over 40 years we have been committed to social and economic diversity and actively recruit families from diverse backgrounds. We provide over $100,000 annually in scholarships to 38% of our population. 88% of these families are of diverse backgrounds, low income, and or families of color. The quality education they receive here result in these students being accepted into the top public, private, and gifted and talented programs in the city and then on to top secondary, high schools and colleges. Over the years over 70% of our scholarship students who applied to private schools were accepted with significant financial aid, while others were accepted into the Gifted & Talented Programs as well as quality public schools. Our preschool is a catalyst that helps equip these children for success. Keeping up with this is a monumental undertaking and is impossible without your help. Please give so even more children won’t fall through the cracks and so we can put them on the path to success.

We’d love for you to participate. If you’d like to make a direct donation to the center, please click the link below. Thank you!
