Excellence Fund at the Buffett Early Childhood Institute

Excellence Fund at the Buffett Early Childhood Institute

The Buffett Early Childhood Institute Fund was established for the benefit and support of early childhood development at the Buffett Early Childhood Institute. Through the work of the Buffett Institute, there is an extraordinary opportunity to work with others to transform the early life experiences of at-risk children from birth through age eight. The Buffett Institute focuses especially on children living in poverty, those growing up under conditions of high stress and familial challenge, and children with developmental delays. The Buffett Institute brings together those who are working to improve early childhood education and development, serving as a catalyst for change and providing a unified vision and common approach for how we can work together to improve children’s learning and development. The Institute partners with schools, communities, policy makers, and others to share—and apply—the best of what is known about early childhood, serving as a bridge to resources and information for parents, providers, and the public, and communicating what is known to improve the lives of vulnerable young children and their families.

The Buffett Institute’s work is made possible by the support of generous donors who have made the dream and vision of the Buffett Early Childhood Institute at the University of Nebraska a reality.
