Caddo Fund

About CFNLA’s Early Childhood Education Fund for Caddo

The Community Foundation brings people and resources together to solve problems. In January 2021, CFNLA set out to raise $1 million so more Caddo Parish children ages 0 to 3 could attend quality early childhood education centers. We are delighted to report that $1 million was raised and was matched by the state, for a total of $2 million in Early Childhood Education scholarships!

Thank you to who contributed to CFNLA’s Early Childhood Education Fund!

This could not have been accomplished without the many generous donors who contributed to CFNLA’s Early Childhood Education Fund. CFNLA thanks you for entrusting your generous donations to the ECE Fund and for all you do for our community! Thanks to your support, 200 children from low-income households in Caddo Parish were able to attend quality early childhood programs in 2022.
