About this grant

This grant provides support to the Asset Funders Network for its core initiatives, including a focus on growing the number of funders and private investments in the Children’s Savings Account field. Started in 2005, as a project of Philanthropy New York, the grantee’s mission is to engage philanthropy to advance economic opportunity and prosperity for low- and moderate-income people. The grantee plays a critical role in sharing best practices with member grantmakers as it relates to research and innovations while helping them learn and connect with one another. Activities planned for 2019-2020 include a webinar series, in-person meetings, and material distribution related to the field-at-large, including policy reform and momentum building resources.
