An initiative of Arizona Grantmakers Forum, the Arizona Early Childhood Funders Collaborative is dedicated to exchanging and linking ideas, knowledge, research and resources to focus statewide attention on a seamless continuum of quality early childhood services that strengthen Arizona’s young children, families and communities. They do this by engaging government, businesses, organizations and philanthropic partners from within and outside of Arizona to bring additional knowledge and resources to our efforts.
The AZ ECFC is staffed by Arizona Grantmakers Forum, which is the statewide network that connects, educates and advocates for Arizona philanthropy.
