The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood
The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood is an incubator of 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. Because of the Foundation’s limited funding capability, it seeks to maximize a grant's potential impact.
The Foundation provides funding in the following areas: Early Childhood Welfare, Early Childhood Education and Play, and Parenting Education.
The next deadline for submitting a LOI is September 30, 2023.

The vision of this initiative is that young people struggling with mental health challenges will receive intervention, treatment, and support services, so that they can enter the next stage of life with optimal well-being.
The Foundation has identified three areas in which focused, collaborative action can result in improved mental health outcomes for young people. Funding recipients will be expected to accomplish at least one of the following goals over a five-year period:
1. Access & Quality: Develop sustainable models for delivering culturally responsive mental health care in primary care practices, educational institutions, and other community-based settings, focusing on prevention, screening, early intervention and follow-up.

3. Workforce: Increase the number of mental and behavioral health service providers, particularly those who share identities with and the lived experience of youth and young adult populations at highest risk.

Pure Leaf Presents "No Grants"
Pure Leaf believes “No Is Beautiful.” Nearly 2/3 of moms have questioned their value because they were overwhelmed with doing it all. Household chores, childcare, and job stresses feel endless, and saying “no” to those responsibilities often comes at a real financial cost.
That’s why we started the “No” Grants: to give women a little extra financial support to help them say “no” to unrealistic expectations. Last year, as part of our $1 million commitment to dismantle the barriers women face when they say “no,” we partnered with SeekHer Foundation, an organization working to dismantle societal expectations that negatively impact women. We created the “No” Grants, a fund providing short-term support to women who want to say “no” more in the workplace.
Now, in year two, we also brought in maternal care advocate, author, and mother Elaine Welteroth. With $400,000 in grant funding, we hope to alleviate some of the real financial pressures of motherhood.
There will be three application periods:
May 9, 2023 - June 30, 2023
July 1, 2023 - August 31, 2023
September 1, 2023 - October 31, 2023
