First Five Years Fund
The First Five Years Fund "is committed to improving the lives of at-risk children by leveraging cost-effective investments in early learning. FFYF aims to focus nationwide attention and resources on comprehensive, quality early care and learning programs for children from birth to age five." 
"Five influential philanthropies joined together to support the First Five Years Fund, including the Buffett Early Childhood Fund, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Irving Harris Foundation, the George Kaiser Family Foundation, and the Children's Initiative, a project of the J.B. and M.K. Pritzker Family Foundation. These five family philanthropies apply a private sector approach to social change, and recognize early learning as a particularly influential and cost-effective investment."  And W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
