Buncombe Partnership for Children’s (BPFC) mission is to strengthen the capacity of educators, families, and the community to build a strong foundation for children’s learning and development beginning at birth. Given that the majority of brain development occurs between a child’s birth and their entry into kindergarten, we invest in children 0-5, their families and the early educators who care for and teach them to partner with local organizations to deliver programs that:
*Improve the quality of early care and education
*Increase access to high quality early care and education
* Expand early literacy opportunities
* Offer family support
*Support children’s healthy development
Additionally, BPFC serves as the backbone organization for the Asheville Buncombe Preschool Planning Collaborative (ABPPC), a community collaborative focused on the expansion of high-quality, accessible child care. ABPPC is a partner in a local coalition of coalitions, Family-friendly Affordable Buncombe focused on housing, transit and child care. More information about our work can be found at http://buncombepfc.org.
As a majority White-led organization, staff and board members have been working to understand our individual privilege, white supremacy power structures, and address inequities in our business structure and the early childhood field. We have much of our own internal work to do. As a local early childhood funder, we have the power to focus resources to lift up, grow, and support the leadership of BIPOC teachers and administrators. We are looking for a consulting partner who can support us in this process.
