The Discovery Timeline provides a web-based opportunity to learn more about the history, events, and decisions of Discovery. You can start with a broad overview and note contextual events during each time period. Then, read descriptions of key foundation decisions. You can also access evidence-based and reflective findings from the “learning and results boxes.” The “also of interest box” to the right is updated periodically as new information is made available.
This timeline was developed through discussions with Discovery grantees, liaisons, consultants, early childhood advocates, and Memorial Fund staff. Memorial Fund staff selected the decisions that would be included. Any questions or feedback on the timeline methodology should be directed to Dr. Angela Frusciante, Knowledge Development Officer at the Memorial Fund.
