Bay Area Early Childhood Funders

 

The Early Childhood Funders (ECF) is an informal affiliation of Bay Area foundations, public funders and private donors focused on improving grantmaking effectiveness in the early childhood field. Membership in ECF is voluntary, members meet three to four times a year to broaden their knowledge of the early childhood field, share information, engage in dialogue, and participate in joint funding activities to improve the lives of young children and their families.

General information about ECF and its major projects, as well as resources and reports are available on this website as well as information about the 1997-2002 Quality Child Care Initiative. ECF is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives.
