While our main four focus areas are career readiness, college readiness, college retention and research on teaching student success, we will consider proposals outside of those areas for very unique initiatives that are expected to have outsized impact on student performance. We will be particularly interested to consider innovations that are scalable to impact large numbers of students, regardless of age.
ECMC Foundation also supports rigorous work in evaluation and measurement of existing programs, and will entertain proposals funding third-party evaluations for ongoing work in our focus areas.
Grants are not awarded for endowment funds, political activities and lobbying, travel, surveys or fund raising activities. Also, please note that we do not make grants for scholarship programs or capital campaigns.
