About Ounce of Prevention Fund
Founded in 1982 in Chicago, Illinois, as a partnership between private donors and the state of Illinois, the Ounce of Prevention Fund strives to give children who are born into poverty a chance for success in school and in life. Decades of research in neuroscience, child development, crime prevention, and economics confirm that learning begins well before kindergarten, and that investing in children during their earliest weeks, months, and years produces the greatest returns to families and to society.
