Early Childhood Success
EBCF invests in programs for children from birth to age 8 to break the “start behind, stay behind” cycle. Our Community Partners and other grantees support positive parenting. They operate quality preschools. They support struggling readers to catch up to their peers. Together we advocate for policies and resources to improve early childhood education programs.
We support programs that help people with employment barriers start and stay on a path toward economic self-sufficiency. Our Community Partners and other grantees provide skills training and job placement in high-demand industries. They also offer training and long-term follow-up services to help their graduates succeed and advance in the workplace.
More Than Money
Every day we engage with grantees, donors, community leaders, elected officials, and others around critical community concerns. Beyond the walls of our building, we are out in the community, connecting with leaders throughout our region on topics ranging from planned giving for nonprofits to confronting suburban poverty.
