By working with young, first-time moms, Nurse-Family Partnership is able to truly change lives – for generations to come. That’s why The Motley Fool is proud to announce its collaboration with Nurse-Family Partnership for our 2014 Foolanthropy campaign. Investing in early childhood development could be the best investment we can make in America’s future, and Nurse-Family Partnership is one of the best programs out there.
With The Motley Fool community, we're aiming to raise $75,000 for the 2014 Nurse-Family Partnership Foolanthropy campaign. This investment will help expand nurse visits to even more communities around America.
The Fool has made a $5,000 initial contribution, will match up to $5,000 in employee contributions, and will donate an additional $2,500 if we as a Foolish community reach our stretch goal of $100,000.
NFP helps first-time, low-income expecting mothers during that critical first two-year window of opportunity for babies by sending nurses to teach mothers good health practices, and how to provide responsible child care, plan their economic future, and find work.
Right now, there’s a huge opportunity to help Nurse-Family Partnership expand. Currently, Nurse-Family Partnership only reaches 2-3% of eligible families. Join us in helping to make sure that every child gets the very best possible start in life!
