Through the better beginnings program, the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations that seek to support high quality early childhood development opportunities. The foundation directs most of its funding to children birth to five years old and their parents/caregivers living in Atlanta.
By investing in opportunities that support proven and innovative interventions and/or enhancement that gets young children ready to learn, the foundation hopes to improve long-term outcomes for Atlanta and the State of Georgia.
The foundation is particularly interested in opportunities that lend themselves to scale in support of a high quality early childhood education system for Georgia. Program approaches should first look to benefit those young children who live in high need communities.
