Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for early childhood development. Specifically, the foundation invests in evidence-based direct service programs in NY that partner with parents to provide the tools and support they need to promote the social, emotional, and cognitive growth of their children. The population focus is children facing multiple risk factors for poor educational and life outcomes. The foundation has a preference for programs that offer intensive and sustained support for the families they serve; facilitate linkages to the full range of services they may need; and have the organizational and research capacity to evaluate the outcomes of their services and to leverage the findings to promote knowledge in the field and/or programmatic replication.
