Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California childcare centers in eligible areas that serve children aged 0-5 for programs that encourage parental engagement and for high-quality professional development. Funding is intended to support infant, toddler, and pre-school centers committed to quality early-childhood development through program design, excellent facilities, family engagement, and qualified staff. The goal of the program is to prepare children and youth from economically vulnerable households for fulfilled and productive lives. Applicants must be located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Grants are geographically limited to organizations headquartered in and serving the five San Francisco Bay Area counties of Alameda, Marin, northern San Mateo (extending south to Redwood City), San Francisco, and west Contra Costa.

The Foundation believes that early childhood education is enhanced by:

  • Incorporating a “whole-child” approach that ensures each child, in each school, is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged
  • Engaging parents and caregivers in the pre-school experience and encouraging them to support their children’s learning
  • Supporting professional development of early childhood teachers, which encourages learning through play, movement, use of the senses, outdoor experiences, and/or creative activity

The Foundation is also open to requests from third-party organizations that provide high-quality professional development to the type of centers outlined above, and/or develop the early childhood expertise of Transitional Kindergarten teachers.
