Funders

You are changing the future of our young children

Strengthening the skills of early childhood educators and families – and changing outcomes for our youngest children – cost money. With funds from the following foundations, government agencies and businesses, we have trained more than 2,500 child-care providers, supported the state’s largest AmeriCorps team, put mentors in dozens of early-care classrooms, and given families help preparing their children for school. Our funders make it all possible. They are changing the lives of today’s children – and tomorrow’s adults.
