Funding is intended to support efforts to expand learning opportunities and supports for children, particularly those from low‑and-moderate-income communities. The goal of these grants is to help all children, especially those in underserved communities, acquire the knowledge, skills, and behaviors they need to succeed in college, career pathways, and life. The Foundation prioritizes proposals that are in-line with the following goals: 1. Advancing Afterschool: The Foundation works to increase access to quality educational opportunities for all children, particularly those from low-income families and underserved communities. 2. Graduating High School College and Career Ready: The Foundation strives to increase high school graduation and college and career readiness outcomes for youth, particularly those in low-income communities. 4. Special Initiatives: The Foundation seeks to respond to new strategies, unique opportunities, and changing social, economic, and political contexts.
