Fairy Tales Come True For Every
UCCC Child! 

We are happy to announce our 2017 Fairy Tales Can Come True Concert and Event was a roaring success. We raised an all-time high of nearly $215,000 - already making a difference in the lives of UCCC children and families in tuition assistance dollars.  

Thank you to everyone who sponsored, donated, and shared in the fun!

A little history about the Fairy Tales Can Come True concert...
University City Children's Center is dedicated to providing high quality care, education, and support to every UCCC child. We partner with families of diverse backgrounds to nurture the growth and development of their children and our Tuition Assistance Program ensures that every family in need is supported. Approximately 45% of  UCCC families receive tuition assistance annually which supports our mixed income model and allows UCCC to continue closing the achievement gap.
