Building Brains and Bank Accounts
A project of The Women's Fund Collaboration Institute 2.0
funded in large part by
The James Milton and Sallie R. Johnson Foundation
and the Thompson Foundation
Building Brains and Bank accounts is a unique collaboration which builds on Childcare Resources' Supplemental Child Care Program to further strengthen families. It aims to change the dialogue in the home to one of not including plans and hope for going to college to one of optimistically discussing college plans.
Parents enrolled in this program will be recipients of financial assistance for child care, administered by Childcare Resources; will receive financial coaching by Gateway Financial Freedom; and will establish incentivised child savings accounts (CSA) with matching funds from PNC. Alabama Asset Building Coalition will administer the CSAs and Southern Regional Asset Building Coalition will provide technical assistance.
