SXSW EDU 2023

Democratizing Access to Early Childhood Funding

Description:

We know that those with lived experience of poverty, recent immigration, and incarceration are best equipped to support vulnerable families—so how can we support them? A new philanthropic prize in NYC is working to put community first and engage wide-ranging nonprofits in early childhood work. Panelists will discuss the power of community partnerships to disrupt systemic bias and learnings from FUEL for 50, a 3-year initiative to support 50 programs focused on caregivers of children ages 0-3.
