You + OKF: What we can accomplish together

As Ohio Kids First continues to build momentum and influence, it strives to increase accountability of elected officials to Ohio’s families and children. We are focused on the following three priorities, each of which will be greatly strengthened with the financial contributions of supporters.

1. Making kids a political priority in 2024

  • Launch voter awareness and engagement digital campaigns to increase urgency for supporting candidates that support young children and families; targeted in key districts for relationship building and to amplify calls to action

  • Acquire and activate supporters to engage in advocacy and electoral politics


2. Know where they stand in 2024

  • Holding Ohio candidates accountable through an early learning position survey and putting responses on the record

  • Recognition of candidates who are champions of children and families, lifting up those who lift up early childhood policies

  • Organizing allies and supporters to call for investment and action by policymakers


3. Exploring a statewide ballot initiative on child care

  • Supporting the coalition building and policy research efforts required to advance towards a statewide ballot initiative to address the child care crisis in Ohio

Ohio Kids First is a 501(c)4 organization. Contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
