Thank you for your interest….
For our 2017 Potts Family Foundation Grants, we will be pursuing a program emphasis that seeks raising the rankings of children’s well-being to among the top 25 states by 2025. This will involve work with more than 40 state and local organizations, a 30 member early childhood legislative caucus, focus on 25 communities and our 65+ Oklahoma Champions for Early Opportunity, (OKCEOs).
Consequently, Potts Family Foundation will restrict its grant funding in 2016 to Oklahoma organizations whose programs address our four focus areas. We believe this focus will allow us to become a stronger catalyst, convener, and champion for early childhood. Our areas of focus for children ages zero to five years old are:
- Home Based Parent Education & Support
- Accessible High Quality Child Care
- Preventative health Care in Early Childhood
- Literacy – Numeracy & Social/Emotional Development
Our hope is to retain and build upon Oklahoma’s existing pioneering programs in these four areas despite the current economic challenges our state faces.
We are fortunate to be able to expand our grant allocations from 6 organizations last year to 11 this year. These 11 organizations have received notice through a Request for Proposal sent to each.
We hope we can further increase our grant allocation in the future years.
