    The Caplan Foundation for Early Childhood supports innovative, creative projects and programs with the potential to significantly enhance the development, health, safety, education, and/or quality of life of children from birth through age five.

    The foundation provides funding in the areas of early childhood welfare, early childhood education and play, and parenting education.

    1) Early Childhood Welfare: Children can only reach their full potential when all aspects of their development — intellectual, emotional, and physical — are optimally supported. Providing a safe and nurturing environment for infants and preschoolers is essential, as is imparting to them the skills of social living in a culturally diverse world. To that end, the foundation supports programs that research best child-rearing practices and identify models that can provide creative, caring environments designed to ensure that all children thrive.

    2) Early Childhood Education and Play: Research shows that children need to be stimulated as well as nurtured, early in life, if they are to succeed in school, work, and life. That preparation relates to every aspect of a child’s development, from birth to age 5, and everywhere a child learns — at home, in childcare settings, and in preschool. The foundation seeks to improve the quality of both early childhood teaching and learning through the development of innovative curricula and research-based pedagogical standards, as well as the design of imaginative play materials and learning environments.

    3) Parenting Education: To help parents create nurturing environments for their children, the foundation supports programs that teach parents about developmental psychology, cultural child-rearing differences, pedagogy, issues of health, and prenatal care and diet, as well programs that provide both cognitive and emotional support to parents.

    The Nature Conservancy is working to promote environmental education through the creation of Nature Works Everywhere gardens. The core principle behind the program is that gardens model conservation science on a relatable scale. To that end, the program empowers students and teachers to work together to create and implement their own solutions to environmental challenges in their communities.

Nature Works Everywhere gardens are designed to connect students to a global challenge — to protect the natural systems that produce our food, water, clean air, and energy.

    Grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded to projects that create green infrastructure as a way to address local environmental challenges. These may include access to healthy food, air quality, heat island effect, climate change, and storm water collection. Through the program, young people will work as social innovators who help guide their communities through project design and implementation.

    To be eligible, a school must be a public or charter elementary, middle, or high school.

    The American Mathematical Society is dedicated to advancing research and connecting the global mathematical community through its publications, meetings and conferences, MathSciNet, professional services, advocacy, and awareness programs.

    To advance this mission, the society's AMS Epsilon Fund Grants for Young Scholars Programs awards grants of up to $15,000 in support of summer mathematics programs for mathematically talented high school students. Grant support is offered to existing programs that are most successful in nourishing mathematically talented youth.

    Programs should have been in existence for at least a year, and preferably more. Programs can focus on problem solving or mathematical research in any area of mathematics. Successful programs tend to have the following characteristics: are run over a period of multiple weeks in the summer, bring in at least twenty high school students with mathematical talent, and generally are directed by mathematicians.

    Funding is for a year, and it is expected that half the funds will be used for student scholarships and half for program expenses. Indirect costs are not eligible for grant support.

    The quality of one’s health is determined by multiple factors: the natural environment, economic opportunities, genetic factors and, to a small degree, medical care. Yet, for many people, it is the conditions in which they live that impact their health the most. Many neighborhoods experience limited access to affordable fresh food, safe places for recreation, high-quality education and living-wage jobs. People who live in these neighborhoods may be exposed to environmental hazards due to the proximity of polluting industries and substandard housing. Improving these conditions promotes health equity among people in low-income neighborhoods and fosters improved health for entire communities.

    Community residents often have a sophisticated understanding of the challenges they face and the solutions that will alleviate these challenges. Equitable and sustainable solutions are best created when leaders of community-based organizations truly engage residents in creating strategies to address neighborhood priorities. Together, they can achieve results that are superior and more durable than solutions imposed from the outside.

    Community-driven solutions are locally determined and contextually appropriate approaches to influence changes in policies, systems, services and practices that create equitable conditions that affect the health and well-being of communities. Local and place-based approaches hold the potential create meaningful and lasting impact and serve as new models for community change.

    Through this focus area, we work to:

    Improve housing affordability and quality through local policy changes

    Support communities to achieve their aspirations to drive more equitable policies, systems and practices.

    Increase the adoption of food-oriented development.

    Increase the adoption of inclusive or community-driven models of community development that address community conditions such as housing, food systems and safety.
