The Potts Family Foundation has two primary areas of focus.
The first area of focus is to increase the effectiveness of nonprofits in improving their communities. We do so through The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits.
Visit their site to learn more about their work.
The second area of focus is revealing the proven link between early childhood development and economic growth. We do so through our partnership with Smart Start Oklahoma and Oklahoma Business Roundtable. We advocate through the Oklahoma Champions for Early Opportunities (OKCEO)
These two areas of focus are accomplished by means of: education, advocacy, collaboration, and grantmaking.
Our Vision: All Oklahomans have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
Mission Statement: To provide support for sustainable early childhood initiatives and nonprofit capacity building.
Who are we? We are a family foundation, organized as a Supporting Organization, and a majority of our board is comprised of outside community leaders.
What do we do? We address root causes of early childhood neglect (emotional, physical, and mental) by supporting proven solutions through early childhood initiatives (ages 0-3), and the management and leadership development of Oklahoma nonprofits.
We collaborate with other entities to leverage people, material and dollar resources and secure greater results. We also provide annual grants in support of our priority initiatives.
Even by as early as age three, the "gap" is there. Reading to your children from birth, for as little as 15 mins a day, can bridge this word gap between different economic upbringings.www.zerotothree.orgwww.zerotothree.org
