Early Education Funders seeks to motivate a sense of urgency around early childhood needs and bring together philanthropists to increase access to high quality early childhood care and education in the San Diego region. After hearing Professor James Heckman and philanthropist J.B. Pritzker speak about early childhood development in February 2016, a dozen members of San Diego Grantmakers established the Early Education Funders to explore how to promote and support early education efforts. The group commissioned a study of opportunities for philanthropic impact in our region (building from the national study by Bridgespan and the Pritzker Children’s Initiative) and agreed that the best opportunity is to focus on increasing the quantity and accessibility of quality care.
