Get Ready Guilford Initiative

Get Ready Guilford Initiative

In 2018, Ready for School, Ready for Life, in partnership with The Duke Endowment, was selected for a multi-year investment from Blue Meridian Partners to pilot and grow an initiative to improve outcomes for children. Blue Meridian is a national partnership of impact-driven philanthropists seeking to transform life trajectories of America’s children and youth by making large investments in promising solutions.

The Blue Meridian investment totals $32.5 million in 2019-2021 and will fund key priorities to plan, design, and implement a system that, in time, will seamlessly connect a wide range of services for the 6,000 children born in Guilford County each year. This work is the Get Ready Guilford Initiative.
