Overdeck Family Foundation
Overdeck Family Foundation (OFF) believes that children’s beginning years are critical. Overdeck has contributed to early childhood since its inception. In addition to grantmaking, the Foundation supports the research of Bedtime Math, an affiliated organization whose mission is to make nightly math as universal and beloved as a bedtime story. OFF affirms an additional commitment of $3 million to early childhood over the next three years, aimed at a range of programs that lay strong foundations for children’s readiness, numeracy, and non-cognitive skills. OFF seeks to invest in programs that expand the capacity of early childhood teachers and leaders, strengthen the quality of early learning, support parents and caregivers in promoting learning at home, and improve continuity in children’s formal learning from birth through third grade.
The Overdeck Family Foundation has committed just under $1 million in early childhood grants. These grants have supported home-visiting programs, parent support and education efforts, and field-building and advocacy work. We expect to contribute an additional $2 million by the end of the calendar year, surpassing their commitment of $3 million over three years.
