Starting kids off right

The Vanguard Strong Start for Kids Program™ was established in 2015 to harness the collective power of charitable giving by Vanguard and our crew. Its broad objective: “to start kids off right.”

Vanguard Strong Start for Kids provides funding and volunteer hours to give children the opportunity to grow, thrive, and learn, with a focus on improving kindergarten readiness for children growing up in poverty. We currently focus our efforts in the high-need communities closest to where our U.S. crew work and live (Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Charlotte), though we also advocate for change nationally and at the state levels. The program is supported by our generous crew and corporate commitments.
