Local Funding for Early Learning: A Community Toolkit
“Communities are hungry for better ways to meet the needs of their children. There is a dearth of information on how to grow your resources locally. This toolkit provides such an excellent guide to those who care about North Carolina children. I wish every state had one! In the child and youth field we need to get better at understanding the flow of resources, the tax and budget process, and creative financing mechanisms in order to be more effective.”
Elizabeth Gaines, Senior Fellow, The Forum for Youth Investment
“I don’t often see this level of quality work – so you are to be congratulated for the accomplishment. And as President of the UNC School of Government Foundation, I am really pleased to see you using the great resources of the institution that gave me my start in public service.”
Ed Kitchen, VP and COO of the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation of Greater Greensboro
