Invest in a Strong Start for Children: A Toolkit for Donors on Early Childhood

May 1, 2015

New evidence from neuroscience and social science, high-level policy efforts, and growing concern among business, military, and other civic leaders have placed early childhood high on the priority list for donors focused on impact. Such growing interest has generated vast amounts of information and potentially useful guidance. We developed this web-based "toolkit" to help donors cut through the noise. The toolkit provides key facts, strategies, exemplar programs, and partners that any donor interested in early childhood should know.As with all of our work, our team curated these resources by reviewing the best available information from research, informed opinion, and field experience. It reflects our review of over 50 major research reports and policy analyses; dozens of conversations with experts and nonprofit leaders in the field; and engagement with two national networks of donors, researchers, and practitioners working to address early childhood issues.
