Join in the Fight to Protect Baby Prop C!

San Francisco’s child care community fought hard to pass “Baby Prop C” in 2018, and took the battle all the way to California State Supreme Court in 2021. Now these critical funds are in peril.
The City of San Francisco has unfortunately put forth two proposals that will reduce ongoing Baby Prop C funding and the Baby Prop C balance (tax dollars collected while Prop C was in a legal battle). The two proposals are:
- Change tax rules of Baby Prop C by exempting big businesses making over $1M in gross receipts from contributing to our child care community, decreasing child care revenue by $17 million annually during an economic recession.
- Reduce the amount of money the city is legally obligated to invest in child care annually: a $30 million cut to child care funding over the next two years.
We estimate these proposals will result in a loss of $150 – $180 million for child care in San Francisco, by allowing the City to change their baseline funding for early education whenever they like. We cannot let city leaders balance the budget on the backs of babies!
