Foundation for Early Learning
"There is immense need in the community and more children are born every day."—Samantha Bowen Walla Walla Valley Early Learning Coalition & Foundation for Early Learning Grantee
Foundation for Early Learning is a public foundation that supports the learning of children, birth through age five. With the generous support of our donors, the Foundation provides grants, technical assistance, and sponsorships to partner organizations and community groups working in every county in Washington State.
Research shows that one out of every two children entering kindergarten is not prepared for school. Our goal is to change this preparation gap, and to ensure that every child is ready socially, emotionally and intellectually to succeed in school, and life.
Since the Foundation was established in 2000, we have awarded over $6.5 million in grants to community groups, built a network of 28 community coalitions and connected thousands of parents and caregivers with local early learning resources.
