Qualistar - Capital Funding for Early Childhood Education Programs

The Qualistar Colorado Capital Fund (QCap) provides nonprofit early childhood programs with small capital grants that will improve the indoor and outdoor physical environment of their facilities. While the Gates Family Foundation does not consider small capital grant requests (for projects typically under $100,000), the Foundation acknowledges that these smaller capital improvement projects can have significant impact on the quality of care that an early childhood education center is able to provide. As a result, the Gates Family Foundation has joined The Anschutz Foundation and Boettcher Foundation to help fund the QCap program.

If your center needs to replace its carpet, if the playground equipment is outdated and no longer safe, or if you need additional classroom space, QCap funds may be a good resource.

Matching grants are available.
