The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is proud to support NBC News’ Education Nation and to shine a spotlight on early childhood education.
We believe all children should have an equal opportunity to thrive, so we work with communities to create conditions for vulnerable children to realize their full potential in school, work and life.
We invest in three key areas – supporting educated kids, healthy kids and secure families – with a special emphasis on the early years from prenatal to age 8. By focusing on these critical years, we can work to ensure that all children get a healthy and successful start – leading to reading and math proficiency by third grade, high school graduation and pathways to meaningful employment.
