Thank you for your gift!

Because of your generosity and commitment to early childhood education, young children living in poverty will have the best chance for success in school and in life.

In 2000, the Ounce developed the first Educare school in Chicago to provide high-quality care, education and a stimulating learning environment for children birth to age 5. Today, there are 23 Educare schools across the country and your support allows us to ensure we accelerate and scale what we’ve learned to reach more children and families with high-quality early learning experiences.
