The Monarch Foundation is a private family foundation based in New York City working boldly to scale simple and inclusive solutions to some of our society’s toughest problems. We want to eradicate child poverty and end our climate crisis. We directly support early childhood organizations in New York City, and we are the funders and implementers behind New York City's first guaranteed income program, The Bridge Project, focused on supporting mothers and babies living in poverty. We support grassroots, minority-led organizations fighting for climate justice across North America and the Arctic, and we invest in venture funds at the intersection of climate change and technology.
The Monarch Foundation joined ECFC to more closely connect with, learn from, and collaborate alongside other funders with shared interests and values in the early childhood space around the country.
We aim to disrupt cycles of child poverty by uplifting individuals and communities, amplifying the voices of others, and scaling solutions that work.
