The Early Education for Every Child Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to sharing early literacy opportunities with underprivileged children. We provide in-kind software grants to schools, day cares, social service organizations, and orphanages in need around the world. Our Foundation also offers individual software scholarship to families that fall within certain income guidelines or have children with special needs. We don't want a single child with a legitimate need for our programs to go without!
We need your help identifying people and organizations in your local community who can benefit from using BrillKids programs. If every parent who has ever used Little Reader, Little Musician or Little Math helped us reach just one child or group in need, imagine all of the lives that could be changed through early literacy!
We'd love for you to contribute as much as you are able! For some people, that may simply be raising awareness by referring people and organizations to the EEECF website. But ideally, we are seeking committed individuals to serve as local guides who walk recipients through the application process from start to finish. Determine what groups or individuals in your community can benefit from using Little Reader. (See responsibilities on the left.)
Institutions and individual families can qualify for grants or scholarship based on several factors, so take the following into consideration when identifying potential recipients.
Institutional Use – We primarily aim to help institutions serving low-income children and those with Special Needs. Preschools, elementary schools, daycares, orphanages, libraries, community centers, and similar facilities in need are eligible to receive grants specifically for institutional use.
Documented Financial Hardship – Families with documented financial hardship can apply for individual scholarship. Applicants must provide a statement of why they feel BrillKids programs will be beneficial to their family and provide an overview of their current financial situation. Acceptable documents to verify low income status may include paystubs, unemployment benefits, food, healthcare, or housing assistance paperwork, and other similar documentation.
Documented Special Needs – Families of children with special needs can apply for individual scholarship. Applicants must provide a statement of why they feel BrillKids programs will be beneficial to their child along with documentation verifying their child's condition. Acceptable documents may include a letter from their doctor or similar medical paperwork showing a diagnosis. Special Needs scholarships may fully or partially fund the purchase of BrillKids software, as each family's financial situation is taken into consideration, as well.
