Early Childhood Funders

Early Childhood Funders is an informal association of Bay Area foundations, public funders and private donors, seeking to enhance grantmaking effectiveness in the early childhood field by providing an opportunity to share information, engage in dialogue, and participate in joint activities to improve the lives of young children and their families. Membership is voluntary, meetings rotate from foundation to foundation, and a leadership team oversees the activities of the group and plans for future meetings and projects.


“Without Community Initiatives, California would not see the impact of hundreds of beneficial projects. They are an important part of our nonprofit landscape.”
