About McKinley

Donor Spotlight

The McKinley Children’s Center owes much of its success to the generosity of its donors. Their donations have directly affected McKinley staff, teachers and students, ensuring brighter futures for our community’s children. This page was created to celebrate these special people.

Mr. James E. Greene has been a friend to McKinley Children’s Center for over 50 years. As a past member of both the Board of Directors and McKinley’s Home Foundation, he has had a huge impact on the direction and finances of the Center. Additionally, both the Greene Auditorium and the James E. Greene Media Center (aka “Jim’s Place”) are named for his generous donations that served as the catalysts for the construction of these two projects on the McKinley campus.  Mr. Greene passed away this April 2015 and will be missed by his McKinley family! 

Target #767, located in San Dimas, has donated all of its “charge back” merchandise to McKinley since 2006. These regular donations have resulted in substantial savings for the Center on such items as coffee, cleaning supplies, trash liners, and diapers, and have provided much needed food items for our community families in need. McKinley is also proud to be a recipient of Target’s annual grant program, which helps fund the Center’s reading program each year.

Mr. Joseph Fan and Brighton Management first became involved with McKinley Children’s Center through the annual Christmas toy drive held at Fan’s daughter’s school. Fan recognized the value of McKinley’s services to children and directly contacted the development department to see how he could help. Since then, he has donated and helped raise thousands of dollars for McKinley’s holiday program and has become an ambassador for the Center within his sphere of influence.
