We are a private, national foundation that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services and community development in Detroit.
The college coaching program offers personalized, near-peer mentoring and a strong support network to guide motivated students to and through college. This grant enables College Forward to scale its ability to improve college access and success outcomes for hundreds of thousands of students in Texas and beyond. The grant was awarded along with a $1 million Kresge program-related investment (PRI) in CoPilot, a student database that provides nonprofit and education partners with a holistic student information system. The database allows users to access and analyze critical student data to deliver targeted interventions to keep students on-track for college completion.
