SUPPORT THE CHILDREN

The Lawton Chiles Foundation exists to spread Lawton and Rhea Chiles’ philosophy concerning how to meet the needs of Florida’s children while providing support and public awareness for children’s programs across Florida through strategic leadership and community collaboration and technology deployment.

Philosophy

Building communities where everyone works together to make sure children can thrive requires strategic planning, web-based technology, performance measurement and broad-based community engagement.

 

Goals

  • Community Ownership and Participation in Early Childhood Success

  • Children are Healthy at Age 1

  • Children are Making Appropriate Progress

  • Children Enter Kindergarten Ready to Succeed

 

Get Involved

Your generous donation to the Lawton Chiles Foundation goes to support the dissemination of Governor and Mrs. Chiles’ cutting edge ideas and programs to help raise Florida’s children to succeed in local Whole Child programs throughout Florida. 

Whole Child is not another program, but a philosophy that uses strategic planning, web-based technology, performance measurement and broad-based community engagement to build communities where everyone works together to make sure children thrive. The Whole Child philosophy is grounded in the notion that communities must address all six dimensions of children’s well being to raise healthy children.

I didn’t come to stay.

I came to make a difference.
