Background

The Institute for Child Success (ICS) is a private, nonpartisan research and policy organization established in 2010. ICS works to create a culture that facilitates and fosters the success of all children. ICS supports policymakers, service providers, government agencies, funders, and business leaders focused on early childhood development, healthcare, and education – all to coordinate, enhance, and improve those efforts for the maximum effect in the lives of young children (prenatal to age five).

Hollingsworth Funds’ Involvement

ICS’ investment in high-quality research and its advocacy for stronger statewide policies that directly impact Greenville County make it an important intermediary in the early care and education field. We were a founding investor in ICS, providing operating support since its inception to help ICS grow into a successful organization that works with stakeholders to seek holistic solutions to complex early childhood challenges.
