Grants Promote Whole Child Development
W.K. Kellogg Foundation
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation supports children, families, and communities as they create conditions that propel vulnerable children to achieve success as individuals and as contributors to their larger community and society. The Foundation’s approach is one of whole child development: ensuring the emotional, social, intellectual, physical, and cultural growth of young children, ages 0-8, within the context of families and communities. The Foundation’s work focuses on three goals: Educated Kids – Increasing the number of children who are reading and math proficient by third grade. Healthy Kids – Increasing the number of children born at a healthy birth weight and who receive the care and healthy food they need for optimal development. Secure Families – Increasing the number of children and families living at least 200% above the poverty level. Within and around each goal are commitments to Community and Civic Engagement and Racial Equity. Geographic priority areas in the United States include the states of Michigan, Mississippi, and New Mexico, and the city of New Orleans; however, promising programs throughout the U.S. are also supported. International grants, which have distinct funding priorities, are currently concentrated in selected regions of Haiti and Mexico. Requests for both national and international grants are reviewed throughout the year. Online application information is available on the Foundation’s website.
