Creating Inroads to a Better Future for All Children
Welcome to the Fordham Street Foundation website featuring our new blog. Please visit often to learn more about the foundation and keep abreast of our news. Once a month the blog will feature a “Meet Our Grantees” installment introducing one of our grantees and describing the amazing work the grantee is doing to improve public education and offer excellent academic opportunities for children of color.
Other features planned include commentary from time to time on education policy, current trends in reform efforts and promising innovations. Feel free to join the discussion; we all have a lot to share and learn from each other.
I will also write about grantmaking at a small staff family foundation and in particular the unique aspects of our process. These posts may be helpful to prospective applicants and I hope they generate some discussion among foundation colleagues as well.
