This annual report details the activities of the Foundation for Child Development (FCD) for 2000-2001. Beginning the report is a presentation of the Foundation's mission, its funding priorities, and application procedures. The report then lists the members of the Council, Board of Directors, Officers, and staff. This is followed by the joint statement of the chair, Karen Gerard, and the president, Ruby Takanishi, highlighting FCD's support of policy-relevant research on low-income working families and their needs. The statement also discusses plans to deepen the Foundation's focus on achieving universal prekindergarten voluntary educational programs for all 3- and 4-year-olds and partnerships with other organizations to create a journalism fellowship program to produce journalists who will contribute greater attention to and action on the broad range of issues affecting family life. The remainder of the annual report delineates the research, policy, communication, leadership development, discretionary, and Anne K. Belding Memorial Fund grants awarded in 2000-2001. The newly-formed Jane G. Dustan Fund is described as well.
