Funding Support

Minding the Baby® (MTB) has been supported by grants and gifts from a variety of generous funders over the last 20 years, including The FAR Fund, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Grossman Family Foundation, and Irving B. Harris Foundation. MTB clinical and research activities in New Haven have been solely supported by grants and gifts since the intervention's inception in 2002. The MTB National Office continues to be primarily grant funded, while also supported by training proceeds, consultation contracts, and private donors, who have been essential in helping us achieve our mission.
