Funding Criteria

We are currently seeking program partners to help carry out our mission. We award the majority of our funds to U.S. 501 (c)(3) organizations and other tax-exempt organizations. Currently, we only fund individuals via these third-party tax-exempt organizations. If the needs of your organization match with our mission we would be pleased to discuss funding options for your programs/services. We seek partner organizations with a proven track record, strong leadership, clear sense of mission, high quality, dedicated staff and a strong presence within the community it serves. Organizations requesting funds must meet the following minimum requirements: 1.

Funds must be used to subsidize childcare and/or early education services for economically disadvantaged families or improve the quality of existing childcare and/or early education services and/or programs. 3.
