The Education Committee makes contributions to education programs or institutions that support educational opportunities for the economically disadvantaged. Examples of this would include after-school education based programs, tutoring programs, college testing preparation (PSAT/SAT), college visits, internship programs, and college/financial aid application assistance programs.
Preference will be given to programs that continue to monitor and provide support for their students after they begin college in order to stem the extremely high drop-out rate of disadvantaged first generation college students. Education committee members will generally make a site visit before approving a grant. Therefore, geographic preference is given to projects and organizations within the states where fund members work or reside in.
