The Center for High Impact Philanthropy at the University of Pennsylvania has released web-based version of Invest in a Strong Start: An Early Childhood Toolkit for Donors. For individuals and organizations interested in supporting early childhood education, the toolkit provides key facts, strategies for investment, high impact opportunities and key partners you should know.
As an extension of an ongoing partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the toolkit was created by a team that reviewed over 50 pieces of major research reports and policy analyses, collaborated with national networks, and interviewed experts and leaders in the early childhood field.
The expanded and updated toolkit includes the following components:
- Funder Briefs: Background information and resources of early childhood topics such as strong starts for young children and harmful chemical exposure.
- Blog Interviews: Interviews with field experts
- Strategies for Investing: Information for donors regarding stakeholders and important background information.
- Return on Investment Profile: Information on what programs to support, the benefits and how to invest.
