SXSW — March 10–18, 2023

Centering Community & Equity in Child Development
We all know that “it takes a village” — but the community organizations that vulnerable families rely on most are still largely shut out of early childhood funding. Guided by community input, a new $10m initiative in New York City aims to transform early learning by elevating 50 local programs focused on parents and caregivers of young children. With help from partners like public libraries and selection led by parents and nonprofit leaders, the project is crossing boundaries and building insights from work in immigration, health, housing, reentry and more. Learn why the nation’s largest fund devoted to early learning is focusing on neighborhood-level programs and partners outside the field of child development — and what philanthropies have to gain from democratizing their approach.

SXSW EDU — March 6–9, 2023

Democratizing Access to Early Childhood Funding
We know that those with lived experience of poverty, recent immigration, and incarceration are best equipped to support vulnerable families — so how can we support them? A new philanthropic prize in NYC is working to put community first and engage wide-ranging nonprofits in early childhood work. Panelists will discuss the power of community partnerships to disrupt systemic bias and learnings from FUEL for 50, a 3-year initiative to support 50 programs focused on caregivers of children ages 0–3.
