Giving Back: Enlow and Associates Donates $1M to North Bay Children's Center

The Mark Enlow Family of Enlow and Associates Gifts Grant to Serve the North Bay Area’s Most Vulnerable Children

In 2019, the Mark Enlow Family of Enlow and Associates, a top executive search firm, provided the North Bay Children’s Center with a $1M grant. The grant went toward the Center’s $7.5M campaign to rebuild its Novato headquarters and expand its service capacity.

Each year, North Bay Children’s Center has to fundraise to make up the gap between what they receive from state funding and parent fees to meet their goals of providing for as many children as possible. The Center fundraises for $700,000 to make their operating budget work, and special projects (like the rebuilding of the Novato headquarters and the expansion of their service) require an even more concentrated effort.

Thankfully, generous gifts from corporations like Enlow and Associates make it easier for the Center to accomplish their goals each year.

North Bay Children’s Center: Working to Provide Access to Early Learning Experiences

Created in 1988, the North Bay Children’s Center works to ensure that children across the North Bay area have access to vital early educational experiences that make them more likely to succeed in school and later in life. The Center provides the social, academic, and emotional experiences that children need to increase their likelihood of success in kindergarten and beyond.

Annually, the Center provides 4,410 hours of child care for parents and 303,000 healthy meals for children. 100% of children enrolled in programs at the Center graduate with the proficiencies required to enter kindergarten.

Enlow and Associates: A Family at Heart

Enlow and Associates is a family company, and Mark Enlow believes in the importance of giving back and supporting others in their community.

Support from corporations like Enlow and Associates makes it possible for the Center to support children in the North Bay area.

In addition to the $1M grant to the North Bay Children’s Center, Enlow and Associates have continued to support the organization. In December 2019, Enlow and Associates hosted the Center’s annual A Night in Tuscany fundraiser.

In January 2020, Mark Enlow opened up his home for the Center’s Healdsburg Gathering for Children’s Sake Fundraiser, followed by Enlow and Associates‘ donation of 100 pounds of chicken and turkey to the North Bay Children’s Center to support children and staff amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
