The Annie E. Casey Foundation is devoted to developing a brighter future for millions of children at risk of poor educational, economic, social, and health outcomes. Their work focuses on strengthening families, building stronger communities and ensuring access to opportunity, because children need all three to succeed. They advance research and solutions to overcome barriers to success, help communities demonstrate what works, and influence decision makers to invest in strategies based on solid evidence. Grantmaking efforts help federal agencies, states, counties, cities and neighborhoods create more innovative, cost-effective responses to the issues that negatively affect children.
