The Florida Philanthropic Network (FPN) is the state’s regional association of grantmakers.  In partnership with the Helios Education Foundation, this two-year grant will provide matching funds for community foundations to raise money for college access and success activities in communities across Florida. Modeled after a Michigan-based effort, the grant will incentivize and reward community foundation leadership through challenge grants to develop Local College Access Networks (LCANs), which are community-based, cross-sector partnerships representing K-12, higher education, nonprofit organizations, business, philanthropy and government.
