Support for Children’s Education Success Efforts
W.K. Kellogg Foundation: Family Engagement Initiative
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is making a $5 million investment to identify and cultivate innovations in the growing field of family engagement that support children’s educational success from birth to 8 years old. The Foundation defines family engagement as a shared responsibility of families, schools, and communities for student learning and achievement. Grants are intended to support and expand on-the-ground family engagement efforts that include program design and implementation, service delivery, and/or policy development and implementation. Organizations that have developed effective family engagement models that address obstacles faced by low-income families are invited to send initial submissions for possible funding of up to $500,000 for one to three years. (No requests should be submitted for work in the Foundation’s priority places of Michigan, New Mexico, New Orleans, or Mississippi as this ongoing work is coordinated through the Foundation’s placed-based focus teams.) The deadline for initial submissions is September 23, 2013. Visit the Foundation’s website to read the press release and submit an online application.
