About Us

About the Early Childhood Funders Collaborative

ECFC is a collaborative of committed early childhood funders who have been learning together and improving our collective positive impact for children, from birth to 8 years old, for nearly 30 years.

Our Vision

All children have an equitable opportunity for healthy development and learning, in the context of their families and communities.

Learn more about our vision and strategic plan in our
2019 Annual Report.

Our Mission

ECFC has two primary goals for our work together:
  1. We will increase the effectiveness of philanthropic investment in systemic, equity-focused approaches to early childhood.
  2. We will promote federal, state, and local policies and practices that support young children, their families, and the early childhood community.
