The Edna McConnell Clark Foundation Grants
The Edna McConnell Clark Foundation supports organizations that help young people, ages 9 to 24, from low-income backgrounds become independent, productive adults in three ways:
- Improving their educational skills and achievement;
- Preparing them for the world of work so they can find and hold jobs and achieve economic self-sufficiency; and
- Helping them avoid high-risk behaviors such as teen pregnancy, substance abuse and illegal activities.
Although the foundation does not accept unsolicited applications, they invite organizations that think they may qualify for support after reviewing the foundation's selection criteria to complete the online Youth Organizations Preliminary Application Form.
