Infant-Toddler Success Fund

Give San Bernardino Children the BEST start! 

The Infant-Toddler Success Fund was established at The Community Foundation in 2015 and is the culmination of a lifetime of work in education for Dr. Albert Karnig, Founder of the Project and President Emeritus of California State University San Bernardino who recently passed away.

The program provides research-based, highly specialized parenting education designed to bring families closer and to optimize brain development so kids are ready for school, have strong self-regulation, and face a dramatically reduced risk of abuse and neglect.  

Offered in English or Spanish, the program is free for families living within the boundaries of the San Bernardino City Unified School District who have children ages 0-36 months. Classes are taught by master's level Parent Educators through a partnership with CSUSB's Parenting Center at the Institute for Child Development and Family Relations.

Funds are raised to support the purchase of incentives such as diapers, baby products, and other items.  
Dr. Karnig was president of California State University, San Bernardino from 1997 to 2012 – only its third president. He served as Provost at the University of Wyoming and Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs at Arizona State University. He also directed ASU’s School of Public Affairs, which at the time was ranked among the nation’s ten leading public policy and administration programs.

Most importantly, his commitment to bringing the dream of a university education to all who earn it has led him to the research pointing to when pediatric neurodevelopment is at its most critical stage, from before birth to age three.  

“Research shows that 80-85% of brain development happens in the first three years of life. These classes are to help parents to be their children’s first and best teacher.” -Dr. Albert Karnig, founder of the project and President Emeritus of CSU San Bernardino
