Education

The Foundation’s Education docket invests in learning from cradle to career. It includes schools that provide early childhood education, kindergarten through twelfth-grade instruction and undergraduate and graduate institutions. The Foundation also looks for models that provide comprehensive services to help students improve academic success and future employment outcomes. This may include charter and private schools, college access programs, groups focusing on teacher and school leader training, as well as certain supportive scholarship programs. In addition, the Foundation invests in adult basic education, literacy programs and preparation and testing for the General Equivalency Diploma.

The Foundation’s grants related to workforce development largely reflect two types of organizations: those that focus on a specific field and help individuals on a career pathway or those that concentrate on broader job- and career-readiness.

 

At our Fall Board of Directors’ Meeting in October 2018, The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation awarded 132 grants for a total of $9,670,000. Below is a list of our recent grantees who applied for a grant between March 2, 2018 and July 2, 2018. Please visit our Annual Report Page for a full list of Cafritz grantees.
