Indigenous Early Childhood Workgroup

In 2021, in partnership with Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP), ECFC established a working group to provide a forum for centering indigenous early childhood and exploring grantmaking strategies to support and advance Native and Tribal led early childhood programs.

The workgroup consists of over 20+ ECFC members as well as invited Native voices. ECFC and NAP share leadership for the group, which is co-chaired by: Shannon Rudisill, ECFC Executive Director; April Luong, ECFC Program Associate;  Rose David (Anishinaabe, Beausoleil First Nation), Director of Tribal Nations Initiatives; and Brittany Schulman (Waccamaw Siouan), Senior Vice President of Programs.
