Support FPG

For 50 years the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute has relentlessly pursued a single goal—to improve the quality of life for young children and their families. Our research, technical assistance, and outreach have shaped how the nation cares for and educates young children. We have a proud history of serving as an objective, knowledgeable force to enhance the lives of children and families. From creating assessment tools used around the world to promote high quality child care to reaching more than one million children with disabilities through our work with states to provide high quality, appropriate supports and services, FPG is at the forefront of the early childhood field.

Our success in securing highly competitive grants and contracts has allowed us to build one of the largest early childhood research institutes in the country, but individual contributions like yours make all the difference. Your tax deductible contribution to FPG is more than a gift. It is a demonstration of your commitment to helping children and families thrive. It shows that you understand the issues facing young children today and that you will partner with us to make a difference.
