This article, originally published in the 2019 Spring Fulcrum News, is part of our “20 Years of Fulcrum” series.
In 2019, Fulcrum launched the Early Childhood Education Fund thanks to a generous donation from Dick and Sharon Abrams. The endowment was originally held by the Seattle Foundation, but was moved to Fulcrum in 2022 and renamed the Early Childhood Education Endowment. The endowment allows Fulcrum to provide critical support to early learning programs in the archdiocese.
