Graduate: All Students Successful
The Foundation Board dedicated resources to the Graduate: All Students Successful grant to invest in grantee partners to help construct or strengthen community capacity to enhance the pure potential of children, youth and families.
The Foundation will provide funding up to $70,000 each year for a three-year period to Wyoming school districts or community organizations who are committed to working across their communities to achieve grant outcomes: (1) align goals and services in response to the needs of children and youth to advance the well-being and success of students, (2) strengthen the services and supports necessary for more students, especially students who are vulnerable, disadvantaged, have experienced trauma or have a disability, to complete high school with a diploma AND (3) increase the capacity of students who do graduate to succeed in their first year of postsecondary education/training or their first year of employment.
The Graduate grant opportunity reflects the Foundation’s belief that communities are best positioned to come together to solve the challenges facing the students who live and ultimately thrive in their schools. Additionally, the grant reflects the Foundation’s recognition that education is influenced by and interconnected to a broader set of conditions like basic needs, health, community connections, and end environments.
The Ellbogen Foundation will accept and review proposals until funds have been fully allocated. All requests must be submitted electronically to:
