Birth to Three is primarily funded by a Massachusetts Early Education and Care (EEC) Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) grant to the Ipswich Public Schools. The grant provides funding for services to Ipswich and Essex young families and the local early childhood community. However, this leaves a significant shortfall in our budget each season.
We thank our community for the financial support and encouragement that has sustained Birth to Three since 2000. The overwhelming majority of our budget finances staff salaries and operating expenses. Additional grants and fund raising for Birth to Three is accomplished through the Ipswich Education Foundation 501(c)(3).
