Two state early-learning organizations to merge

Two Washington organizations dedicated to increasing and improving pre-kindergarten learning opportunities announced today that they will merge, effective the first of next year.

Thrive by Five Washington and the Foundation for Early Learning will combine their efforts, which include giving grants to organizations working to boost early learning, and increasing the awareness of parents and other caregivers about child development.

The Foundation, established in 2000, grew out of a state commission on early learning with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Thrive by Five is a public-private partnership founded in 2006 by businesses and foundations.

Don Stark, board chair of the Foundation, said in a statement that the merger will increase the reach of both organizations and “forge new opportunities for the children of Washington state.”
