ECE Funding Landscape


ECFC's Early Childhood Education Landscape Map has retired as of May 31, 2023.

In 2018, with support from Heising-Simons Foundation and Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, an interactive mapping tool was developed to offer valuable insights about the state of philanthropic support for early childhood care and education, as well as to provide a platform for future deep dives connecting evidence on issues of interest to the field with accurate data about investment in those same issues.  The mapping project provided both funders and practitioners alike with a birds eye view on where philanthropic funding for improving early childhood care and education has been concentrated from 2008-2018, where there may be gaps, and who exactly has been at the funding table.

The landscape tool was powered by data from Candid's Foundation Directory Online.  In 2023, our landscape tool was retired as the Foundation Directory online transforms.  Visit Candid for more information on services, programs and information for funders and nonprofits.
