The Fordham Street Foundation awards grants with the goals of helping children of color succeed in school, improving public education, and reducing racial and socioeconomic disparities in educational opportunities and outcomes. The foundation awards most grants to programs in New York and Washington State; however, it does consider requests from other areas and potential applicants should schedule a proposal discussion. One-year Program Grants for education projects that support children of color are available to new applicants and previous grantees.
Only current or past grantees may apply for three-year Sustaining Grants to encourage innovation and to build capacity and program quality. Eligible applicants are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Qualified organizations for a Sustaining Grant must contact the foundation for the application procedure. Complete Program Grant applications with all supporting documents may be submitted by email (preferred) or by postal mail. Notifications are made by the end of May.
Eligibility: Public, Charter, Other (including homeschool, 501 (c)(3) organizations)
Award: Program Grants up to $20,000 and three-year Sustaining Grants up to $65,000 per year are awarded.
