Birth to Five Policy Alliance

The Birth to Five Policy Alliance was established in 2005 to help shift the odds for very young children and narrow the achievement gap. ZERO TO THREE is an organizational partner of the Alliance, along with 12 other national early childhood organizations. The Alliance was created through funding from the Buffett Early Childhood Fund, which continues to fund the Alliance's work along with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Children’s Initiative: a Project of the JB and MK Pritzker Family Foundation, the George Kaiser Family Foundation, the Irving Harris Foundation, and an anonymous donor.
