What We Fund

Sunlight Giving helps support children’s healthy development through spaces for:


Programs that help organize and lift community voices to build and revitalize parks and neighborhood spaces where young children play and explore.


Community centers, playgroups, and libraries serving as hubs for families and young children and providing activities, resources, and connection.

Early Care and Education

Care providers that offer federal/state subsidized child care programs and wrap-around services to connect families with other resources.

Systems Change

Policy, advocacy, and systems work to improve access, affordability, and overall quality of care for children 0-5 years.

What We Look For

Organizations that ensure these spaces are available in neighborhoods and communities that currently lack them.

What We Don't Fund

Programs that exclusively promote kindergarten readiness or literacy. Youth development and after-school programs for school-aged children.
