Thrive manages a multi-faceted, strategic and highly regarded annual grants portfolio of about $11 million that helps build the highest-quality early learning programs for every child, especially those furthest from opportunity. We combine and maximize public and private funds and invest in agencies, coalitions and nonprofit partners, supporting innovation, sustainability and expansion.
COMMUNITY CAPACITY BUILDING
Thrive brings together parents, community members, regional stakeholders and state-level decision makers to create equitable and effective ways of supporting young children and their families. We encourage innovative ideas, build key partnerships and provide technical assistance to our state’s home visitors and 10 early learning regional coalitions.
POLICY & ADVOCACY
Thrive convenes the partnerships, provides resources and supports, and champions the policies that are vital to a strong and equitable state early learning system. Our policy work advances racial equity, demands high-quality, connects people at all levels, amplifies the voices of families and the community, and supports an education continuum that allows children to thrive from cradle to career.
