Some kids win the lottery at birth; far too many don't - and most people have a hard time catching up over the rest of their lives. Children raised in disadvantaged environments are not only much less likely to succeed in school or in society, but they are also much less likely to be healthy adults.

We invest in the First 2,000 Days of a child’s life — in children ages 0-5 and their families by partnering with local organizations to provide programs that:


  • improve the quality of early childhood education

  • increase access to affordable, high-quality early care

  • expand early literacy opportunities

  • provide family support


There are 2,000 days between birth and kindergarten. The majority of brain development happens during this time, forming the foundation for all future learning.
