About the Children’s Opportunity Fund
An initiative and component fund of The Community Foundation, the Children's Opportunity Fund (COF) is a public/private partnership to support investment in the well-being of Montgomery County's children and families. The COF's mission is to bring together top government leadership and dedicated community partners to plan, advocate for, and fund strategic investments that improve the lives of children and families in Montgomery County. The COF envisions a deliberate, coordinated strategy for aligning public and private resources to ensure that all children have access to the essential services and growth opportunities they need to thrive. The COF was founded through joint funding from Montgomery County Government and Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) responding to the growing opportunity gap that results because students from low-income families do not have access to the same supports and out-of-school experiential learning available to their more affluent peers. The COF was designed to leverage public dollars and encourage private investment in disrupting the social and health determinants that predict and perpetuate the educational achievement gap.
