Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood

The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood supports promising research and development projects that appear likely to improve the welfare of young children, from infancy through 7 years, in the United States. Welfare is broadly defined to include physical and mental health, safety, nutrition, education, play, familial support, acculturation, societal integration and childcare.

Grants are only made if a successful project outcome will likely be of significant interest to other professionals, within the grantee’s field of endeavor, and would have a direct benefit and potential national application. The Foundation’s goal is to provide seed money to implement those imaginative proposals that exhibit the greatest chance of improving the lives of young children, on a national scale.

Grants are made in the areas of:

  • early childhood welfare
  • early childhood education and play
  • parenting education

Grants typically range between $25,000 and $50,000. LOIs are due January 31, 2022.
