Mission

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation supports children, families and communities as they strengthen and create conditions that propel vulnerable children to achieve success as individuals and as contributors to the larger community and society.

Notes from the nonprofit

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) places the optimal development of children at the center of all we do and calls for healing the profound racial gaps and inequities that exist in our communities. We believe in supporting and building upon the mindsets, methods and modes of change that hold promise to advance children’s best interests generally, and those of vulnerable children in particular.

Concentrating our resources on early childhood (prenatal to age 8), within the context of families and communities, offers the best opportunity to dramatically reduce the vulnerability caused by poverty and racial inequity over time.

There is strong evidence that optimal child development means providing children with the stimulus, tools and support necessary for their emotional, intellectual, physical and cultural growth. To achieve this, we organize our work and investments toward attaining three strategic goals:

Educated Kids: Increase the number of children who are reading-and-math proficient by third grade.

Healthy Kids: Increase the number of children born at a healthy birth weight and who receive the care and healthy food they need for optimal development.

Secure Families: Increase the number of children and families living at least 200 percent above the poverty level.

Within and around each goal are commitments to Community & Civic Engagement and Racial Equity – because both are necessary for communities to create the conditions under which all children can thrive.

We take a place-based approach to our work, concentrating as much as two-thirds of our grantmaking in a limited number of specific places where we believe we can have maximum impact.

WKKF Community Leadership Network

The WKKF Community Leadership Network Fellowship targets individuals who can be transformative social change agents in their communities so that vulnerable children and their families can achieve optimal health and well-being, academic achievement and financial security. Embedded in this effort are the foundation’s two approaches to all its work: community and civic engagement and racial equity and healing.

Population(s) Served

We believe every child deserves a fair chance at success in school and life. Focusing on a child’s education and development from birth to age 8 is the most effective way to help children reach their full potential now and in the future.

Population(s) Served

We look at health and well-being in the context of community and across the full range of child development. We emphasize the prenatal months to age 8 as the foundation for all healthy development. And we focus on communities with high health disparities. A nation where all children thrive is what we envision. Health equity is our measure.

Population(s) Served

The economic security of families is crucial to creating the optimal conditions through which children can develop, learn and grow. We work alongside communities to help parents and families access promising career pathways, accumulate assets and achieve financial independence and freedom from economic barriers based on race.

Population(s) Served

We believe that racial healing and racial equity are essential if we are going to accomplish our mission to support children, families and communities in creating and strengthening the conditions in which vulnerable children succeed. We actively support efforts to dismantle racial and structural inequities that limit opportunities and hold some children back.

Population(s) Served

We believe that people have the inherent capacity to solve their own problems and that social transformation is within the reach of all communities. We act on this belief by partnering with diverse communities, amplifying their voices and helping them to create conditions in which their children can thrive.
