Want to introduce yourself?

The Alliance for Early Success does not accept unsolicited grant requests. But we are always interested in meeting new organizations that advocate for policies that improve outcomes for children birth through eight. Are you an organization working to promote racial equity and to dismantle and disrupt structural racism and historic barriers to the success of communities of color? Do you meaningfully partner with and lift up the lived experience of communities of color in your policy, practice, and advocacy? If so, we’d love to hear more about your work:

Pivoting for COVID-19

As our allies pivot to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alliance for Early Success is also pivoting in recognition that so much has changed and there is so much to do. The two key aspects of our response to grantees are: 

Flexibility – Grantees can re-prioritize, re-allocate, or otherwise re-direct our support to best address both their capacity and the needs at the state level. 

Reporting and Proposals – Time spent on paperwork is time not spent responding to threats to the supports for children and their families. We are significantly streamlining reporting and, in many cases, eliminating steps all together.
