Thank you for your gift!

Thank you for your generosity and commitment to early childhood education. Because of you, 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 to serve children birth to age five. Today, there are 25 Educare schools across the country serving 3,400 of our youngest learners each year. Your gift helps fund programs like Educare.

This year, we reached a milestone. We’re proud to share that our first cohort of Educare Chicago students have graduated and are thriving. Click below to hear former students share their journey through school and their plans for the future.

Be sure to follow the Ounce on social media to be the first to see how your support is creating better outcomes for children and families.
