Erie's Future Fund- Providing Pre-School Education to Erie's Youth
Posted on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 9:25 AM

Erie’s Future Fund was created in 2011, an outgrowth of the Erie Community Foundation’s Early Childhood Advisory Panel in partnership with United Way of Erie County, Success By 6, members of the Early Learning Investment Commission (ELIC) and Erie Together.

Early childhood research shows that well-focused early childhood education investments can produce high public returns, particularly for children living in families with low income levels. Erie’s Future Fund will provide scholarships to low-income families in neighborhoods with the highest percentage of families with children under 5 living in poverty.

For more information about the program, click Erie’s Future Fund.

To assist in keeping the scholarships available for children in Erie County, click here and connect with Bill Jackson at the United Way of Erie County at 456-2937 ext. 238, as soon as possible for further instructions.
