As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Northland Early Education Center must rely on the generosity of community members, foundations and corporations for nearly 20 percent of its annual budget. Forty percent of NEEC’s operating income is derived from parent paid tuition and the other 40 percent comes from fees for services through contracts it has with the Missouri First Steps program, Clay County Developmental Disabilities Resource Board, Platte County Board of Services and other local and state governmental entities.   Each year NEEC strives to diversify its funding base and form lasting relationships with new community members and donors. Our goal is not necessarily to receive funding from every new person we meet; we simply want to convey the message of how important quality, fully–inclusive early education and intervention services are for all young children.

The Board of Directors, children, families and staff of NEEC would like to thank the following corporations, foundations and individuals, as well as the businesses and individuals who provided items or services for, and/or attended our first annual Hangar Party and our annual Pioneer Run. We are extremely grateful for and humbled by their benevolent support in 2017. Thanks to the charitable spirit of our donors, NEEC is able to further its mission of providing quality, fully-inclusive early education and therapy services for children who have special needs and typical needs, in order for them to reach their full potential.
