Spring is a time for growth and renewal, and at Spence-Chapin, we see growth happen throughout the whole year—we see families grow through adoption; love grow between a Granny and a child; connections and friendships grow through our community programming; and so much more.
Your support this Spring will help make this year another one of meaningful growth for all of the programs and services Spence-Chapin provides to childrnen, women, and families!
The love of a Granny changes a child’s life forever. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, 180 children in South Africa and Colombia now know the love of a Granny—someone who comes every day just for them, who knows them and advocates for them, who listens to them and helps them grow and thrive. Someone they can count on. Help us grow the love of Granny throughout the world! Click on our link in bio to support Spence-Chapin today!

As a reminder, certain charitable giving incentives that were created during the pandemic are still in effect this calendar year and allow individuals to deduct up to $300 and married couples filing joint returns up to $600 on their 2021 taxes regardless of how they do their deductions (standard or itemized). For those who itemize, deductions for contributions can be applied up to 100% of adjusted gross income, rather than the normal 20-60%. These incentives allow you to make an even greater impact this year
Your generosity helps us continue to build and support all families!
