Mission Statement

Every Child Matters focuses on raising the profile of children during elections. While many national and state organizations play critical roles in helping formulate good public policies for children, experience shows that working on policy, while important, just isn't enough when children's needs run into special interest politics.

That's why we focus on making children a priority during elections: Children's issues are more likely to gain political attention when office seekers believe they can gain public approval by supporting pro-children policies .

Description

The Every Child Matters Education Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization working to make investments in children, youth, and families a national political priority.

We promote the adoption of smart policies--access to affordable, comprehensive health care services, expanding early-care and learning opportunities and after-school programs, preventing violence against children in their homes and communities, alleviating child poverty, and addressing the special needs of children with parents in prison--by raising the visibility of these issues during the election cycle and urging the candidates to support child and family-friendly policies.

We campaign for children, not for candidates, using all the tools and tactics that are available to 501(c)(3) organizations, including polling, voter registration, get-out-the-vote efforts, candidate surveys, and candidate forums.
