Einhorn Family Charitable Trust: Grants for Early Childhood Education

OVERVIEW: The Einhorn Family Charitable Trust seeks organizations with the ability to make meaningful and measurable progress over time in the early childhood education space.

IP TAKE: This funder tends to award substantial multi-year grants in order to build strong relationships with its partners. EFCT also works collaboratively with its grantees.

PROFILE: The Einhorn Family Charitable Trust (EFCT) was established in 2002 with the simple goal of “[h]elping people get along better.” According to the foundation, its “[v]ision is to live in a country where people of different beliefs and backgrounds work together with openness and kindness to solve our nation’s most difficult social problems.” EFCTs main grantmaking programs include Parenting and Early Childhood, K-12 Education, Campus and Community.

EFCTs Parenting and Early Childhood program focuses on helping parents and caregivers foster the healthy development of children in the early stages of life. This grantmaking includes an educational component. For example, past early childhood education grantees include Jumpstart, which received funding for its language, literacy and social-emotional programs for preschool children in low-income communities; and Thirty Million Words, which received a grant for its work regarding evidence-based interventions to optimize early learning environments.
