Ounce Affiliates Board

The Ounce Affiliates Board works to advance the Ounce of Prevention Fund mission by engaging citizens in support of early childhood education. Members introduce the Ounce to new champions and support the children served in our programs through fundraising and volunteer opportunities.

Members include a growing number of young professionals, business people, educators, parents and entrepreneurs who are committed to supporting early learning programs that help all children reach their potential to succeed in school and in life.
