America's Promise Launches Fund to Combat Dropping Out
America's Promise Alliance has launched a new philanthropic fund focused on solving the nation's high school dropout crisis.
August 4, 2011
The Grad Nation Community Impact Fund will provide grants to stimulate community engagement and investment to help transform the nation's lowest-performing schools and surrounding communities.
The Grad Nation Fund is part of America's Promise Alliance's larger Grad Nation Campaign, a 10-year initiative to mobilize all Americans to end the dropout crisis and prepare young people for college and the 21st century workforce. The Grad Nation Fund will raise $50 million to support this effort. A total of $1.5 million in pledges have been secured so far.
