Child Development Focus

It goes without saying that the years from birth through 18 are critical for children’s growth and development.

When children grow up with loving, knowledgeable, supportive adults in their lives, they build the foundation to live as independent, economically-free adults.

Our grantmaking is all about ensuring that children have the developmental experiences that they need, at the time that they need them, to build that foundation of independence.   This section will tell you more about those developmental needs and help you to understand why we believe that proper child development is so important.
