Demand for funding has increased dramatically in the last several weeks as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on postsecondary institutions and the students they serve. As a result, we are giving priority to those requests that address the immediate challenges and opportunities arising from the pandemic. The Foundation is especially interested in those proposals that focus on implementing systemic reforms to increase college success and career readiness for students from underserved backgrounds.
Through its two focus areas, College Success and Career Readiness, ECMC Foundation provides a spectrum of investment strategies, including strategic grantmaking and program-related investments; and supports the following key activities:
- New Program or Model Development
- Existing Program Refinement or Expansion
- Organizational Capacity Building
Deadline: ECMC Foundation accepts Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) on a rolling basis.
