Learn More About Grantmaking

In July 2015, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust publicly launched Great Expectations and awarded its first set of grants. Since then, The Trust and MDC—Great Expectation’s Activating Agency—have been listening and learning from families and providers and developing grantmaking strategies that build on what we’ve learned.

In late February 2017, the Trust released their newest funding announcement for Great Expectations. The Trust is accepting applications via an open call for proposals, and making a series of targeted investments that are Trust-initiated. The open call and the targeted investments will center on three funding areas: Early Intervention and Health, Access to Quality Childcare, and Birth to Eight Educational Alignment
