Abstract [en]

What significance did donations, bequest, tuition fees and fund raising events have for early care and education programs during the nineteenth and early twentieth century? Through an examination of 24 Swedish infant schools, day nurseries and free-kindergartens, this article verifies that donations and bequest was of uttermost importance for the economy of these programs. Revenues from fund raisers was, however, not as important as previous research suggests. Balls, concerts and coffee-parties were arranged quite frequent, but their function was rather to create publicity than raising revenues. Instead, fees and specially revenues from interest played a larger part in the economy of these programs than previous research have suggested. Thus, this article raises a series of questions regarding the funding of such programs, national differences in this respect, and the development of fundraising strategies over time, opening up for further studies in this area of research.
