How to use the Advocate Toolkit

The Toolkit developed by JVA Consulting and the CCTC Coalition is intended to serve as an inspiration and resource for businesses, advocates and others. The Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (CCTC) is an opportunity for individual and business investment in qualified early childhood care and education programs. We hope that you share this information with your network(s) as well as consider a contribution.

These outreach materials may be added to your website, customized with your logo and shared with your network. If the form or template opens with a blank page, change your browser to Google Chrome or download the document.
