Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $20,000 to California charter and private schools in Los Angeles, Berkeley, Oakland and West Contra Costa school districts to address challenges and opportunities faced by disadvantaged and multiracial children in an era of rapid technological and social change. LOIs must be submitted at least 3 weeks prior to the deadline for consideration.

Priority is given to requests focusing on schools' basic education program, schools and programs that have existing successful systems that could be replicated or expanded, and activities that learning or increase number of students served through the use of blended learning.

One focus of the Foundation is to formulate policy recommendations in support of and provide funding for revised school curricula that will be supportive and inclusive of multiracial children without sacrificing either basic skills training or appropriate performance standards.

The revised curricula would be designed to motivate multiracial children to remain in school and to encourage them to use their education to leverage their ability to achieve a successful assimilation into the economic mainstream without sacrificing their multiracial and/or multicultural heritage.

A second focus of the Foundation is to formulate, by means of policy studies and analysis, a realistic template for educational reform focused on the buyer (the student) rather than the seller (the school).
