    Fordham Street Foundation


    The Fordham Street Foundation seeks opportunities to promote the rights of all children to thrive, grow and be enriched. The Foundation will support innovative programs that:
    • Help children of color succeed in school, improve public education, and reduce racial and socio-economic disparities in educational opportunities and outcomes
    • Improve the academic or physical environment in schools least able to address these needs
    • Enrich the lives of homeless children
    • Prevent domestic violence
    The Foundation will focus its efforts on human or direct services in these areas together with education, training and resource development, and advocacy and policy work. Requests for endowment or capital support are unlikely to be funded.
    The Foundation will actively pursue opportunities to leverage resources. This leverage may be gained by: seeking out organizations that have done well leveraging their resources; encouraging potential grantees to identify multiple funding sources in their requests; and promoting interaction between the Foundation and its grantees and among grantees.

    The Foundation administers two types of grants: Sustaining Grants and Program Grants
    • Sustaining Grants: These grants are intended to provide unrestricted support to build grantee capacity, encourage innovation and sustain program quality over the 3-year term.
    • Program Grants: to support programs helping children of color succeed in school.
    The Fordham Street Foundation gives preference to programs located in the states of Washington and New York.
