Grant Summary

$100,000 over 12 months to engage funders collaboratively to improve college completion rates in New York City. The Teagle Foundation was a seed funder for this initiative and has continued to be impressed with the collaborative funding model, which creates strong partnerships and shared learning opportunities in the following areas: the replication of best practices in college access from across the country, the testing of new models to improve college persistence, and the promotion of completion rates for students living across the five boroughs.
