The Partnership for Children is a non-profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. A large percentage of the funding received by the Partnership comes from Smart Start state funds. However, the local Partnership is presently receiving less than forty percent of its full funding and relies heavily on the support of foundation grants and local gifts. All gifts, cash, and 'in-kind' donations are eligible to be matched 2 to 1 by the North Carolina Partnership for Children. In-kind goods and services are always in need.
