Yakima, WA -  Two charitable organizations donate more than a million dollars in grant money to fund a business plan for the East Yakima Early Learning Initiative.

Educators announced the donations at ESD 105 in Yakima this afternoon.

'The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation' is giving $750,000.

More than $420,000 will come from Thrive by Five Washington.

That money will be used to put together a business plan for the initiative.

The plan will be submitted to those two organizations in June.
