Case Study: Into the Fray
September 18, 2012 - McKnight-funded case study details early learning investment impact
The Foundation for Child Development's latest case study, Into the Fray: How a Funders Coalition Restored Momentum for Early Learning in Minnesota, tells the story of Minnesota philanthropic funders who built the case and mobilized constituencies for high-impact early learning investments in the state, guiding Minnesota toward federal grant awards totaling nearly $90 million for early learning.
Our Minnesota experience offers important lessons regionally and nationally for those seeking to advance the cause of early childhood education in their communities and states.
The Foundation for Child Development is a national, private philanthropy dedicated to the principle that all families should have the social and material resources to raise their children to be healthy, educated and productive members of their communities. This independent case study was funded by The McKnight Foundation.
