This annual report details the activities of the Foundation for Child Development (FCD) for 1998-99. Beginning the report is a discussion of the history and mission of the foundation, its funding priorities, and application procedures. The report lists the members of the Council, Board of Directors, Officers, and staff. The joint statement of the chair, Barbara Paul Robinson, and the president, Ruby Takanishi, highlights the historic background of the 100 year old foundation and its evolution from a direct-service agency to a strategic philanthropy. The statement also discusses future plans to support efforts to reframe a social covenant regarding the care and responsibility of children and to continue attention to children of working poor families, accessibility to quality health care and early education/care programs, and joint efforts with other sectors of society, including labor unions, the business community, and parents themselves to place children and family issues higher on the public agenda. The remainder of the annual report delineates the research, policy, service/program development, discretionary, and Anne K. Belding Memorial Fund grants awarded in 1998-99. Foundation-sponsored publications are listed. The independent auditor's report detailing the financial position of the foundation and the schedule of investments completes the annual report. (KB)
