The Zanvyl and Isabelle Krieger Fund supports programs that enhance individual and community potential.
Our reason for joining ECFC:
Over the years, as we have learned about brain development in the first three years and the protection that a strong attachment with a caregiver provides, we have focused our grantmaking in this area. Early childhood in general is an underfunded area, and we look forward to having colleagues who share our funding interest in ECFC. As a small Foundation, we hope to learn from those with greater resources.
Where our work is focused:
We focus our grantmaking in Baltimore City.
What we want to work on with our peers:
We are hoping to increase interest in the underfunded area of early attachment. We hope that more foundations will begin to focus on the parent-infant relationship, which evidence shows is so important for healthy development and school readiness. We look forward to bringing the knowledge we have acquired in that area and learning from our colleagues.
