The Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation supports families with preschool children in Madison, Wis. to reach grade school reading-ready


Families & Schools Together was awarded a $5,000 charitable grant in November 2017 from the Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation. The investment will fund the pilot of FAST® at One City Early Learning Centers in Madison, Wisconsin. The Foundation’s contribution will be matched dollar for dollar by a Madison Community Foundation challenge grant.

One City is an affordable, accessible, and quality preschool that takes a two-generation community impact approach to cultivate healthy and successful children. The Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation’s philanthropic gift will impact whole families who have children enrolled at One City – parents, other caregivers, siblings, as well as the One City student. One City FAST Families will be supported by intentionally representative teams who will guide parents to practice and implement theory-driven strategies to increase family cohesion and improve child behavior.

Families & Schools Together is grateful that the Endres Manufacturing Company Foundation is now among a generous philanthropic community, which enables us to partner with One City in its mission is to prepare young children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life, and ensure they enter grade school reading-ready.
